BDA Scotland’s dementia project focuses on the Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) within the Iris Murdoch Building at the University of Stirling. The Iris Murdoch Building opened in 2002 and was the first dementia-friendly public building in the UK. It provides visual examples for those looking to understand how they can make their space more supportive and friendly for someone living with dementia.
