About the Author

Alison Bowes is Professor in Sociology and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences in the University of Stirling, UK.

Alison Dawson is Research Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Stirling, UK.


Sociologists Bowes and Dawson update a 2009 review of research into designing environments that will help people with dementia lead better lives. Their goal is to offer a foundation for practical design work in relation such environments. In previous studies, they have shown that much available advice on design has mixed provenance: while some design measures that are widely promoted have a strong evidence base, others have little. They argue that rigorous review of evidence is therefore well merited, and seek to provide it here.
