  • Improved knowledge of regional municipal planners and decision-makers on physical planning and design to enable communities to become dementia-inclusive.
  • Use of the environmental audit tool by community-based dementia advocacy organizations and persons living with dementia to conduct evaluation of the neighbourhood environment and identify intervention projects.
