This design guide is aimed at improving the experience of hospital environments for older people. It is a manual which can be used by those responsible for the design and management of hospital environments either at the initial stages of design or in the on-going upgrading and refurbishment, and by medical staff in the day-to-day management of clinical spaces. This guide identifies the design interventions that could be made to make hospital environments more accommodating to old age. It is not a comprehensive guide to the design of hospitals, but it focuses on those spaces within hospitals that are used by older people.
