Training and education programs
DDS architects offer training and education programs on the built environment to optimise knowledge transfer to professionals and carers. DDS’ carer programs help carers understand what maybe causing behavioural changes in a person living with dementia, while equipping them to recognise potential ‘stressors’ in the built environment.
DDS offers detailed technical training for planners, architects and other professionals. We can tailor programs to your needs.
