Welcome to Iridis

Thanks and a hat tip to Kathryn W.....


Thank you for signing up to hear about the latest news on Iridis. We are delighted that you want to be part of this cutting-edge revolution in the sharing of dementia design principles. 

The University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC)has an international reputation for promoting best practice in design for people with dementia. We know that good design can help people with dementia stay independent for longer and improve their well-being and overall quality of life. 

Dementia Design Audit Tool
You may already be aware of DSDC’s Dementia Design Audit Tool, which has been used around the world to assist with the designing of dementia inclusive environments. Iridis will allow us to take the research based design principles, which underpin the audit tool, and translate them into a digital tool which can be accessed by those who want to improve environments for people with dementia. 


The Iridis app has been made possible through collaborating with Space Group, international design and technology specialists for property and construction.  By combining our range of knowledge and expertise we will be able to provide you with a ground-breaking app which will help to improve the lives for people with dementia and their carers.
