The Dementia-Friendly Home is designed to help carers adapt or design a home for a person living with dementia.

Carers are placed in a virtual home that they can explore at their own pace, learning how to make it more suitable for people with dementia. Each object within the home is interactive, allowing carers to immediately see and hear the impact simple modifications may have for a person living with dementia.

This application is based on Alzheimer’s Australia’s Dementia-Enabling Environments Project (DEEP) and is supported by the joint Commonwealth-State funded Home and Community Care Program. For more information, please visit

For optimal experience, we recommend installing on a recent iPad/iPhone model (iPad Air 1/2, iPad Mini 3/4, iPhone 6/6+). This app does not work on iPad 2, iPad Mini 1, or iPhone 4/4S.
