---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of an organizational aid to assist individuals with dementia organize items essential to daily life. The Dementia Organization Care System is designed to eliminate the distress caused from the confusion of individuals with dementia. The design process involved meeting with occupational therapists to discuss the issues with current commercial products and the layout of home environments. Multiple sketches and designs were presented to a professional health care team and designs were selected that met the demands and needs of the market and potential users. The final design of the Dementia Organization Care System consists of a crafted wooden block that allows three different compartments to be attached to it. The design is simple with clean cut lines and use of material. Compartments were designed to slot securely into the main body. There are 16 arced channels that chosen compartments slot into using no fixings. There are four different versions, each of which is designed for a specific area of the home - hallway, living room, bathroom and bedroom. Each channel is CNC milled to ensure they are identical. There are many channels to compartments that can be arranged in different configurations. Each version of the product includes a range of 25 labeled illustrations that display a range of household items. These icons can be attached to the side of each compartment to indicate which item belongs there. AUTHORS: Simon Wilson and Kate Jackson. TITLE: Dementia Organization Care (Coventry University).
