Rosnąca liczba badaczy oraz profesjonalistów pracujących z osobami starszymi dostrzega znaczenie fizycznych i społecznych aspektów środowiska, które przyczyniają się do dobrego samopoczucia oraz poprawy jakości życia mieszkańców domu opieki. Celem artykułu jest przegląd literatury dotyczącej wpływu projektowania środowiskowego na dobrostan psychiczny i fizyczny osób cierpiących na chorobę Alzheimera. W artykule dokonano opisu najważniejszych objawów choroby Alzheimera, a także przeglądu badań nad demencją i projektowaniem środowiskowym, zwracając szczególną uwagę na związek pomiędzy rozwiązaniami architektonicznymi a zmniejszeniem negatywnych objawów choroby Alzheimera. Wskazano na kierunki przyszłych badań mających na celu doskonalenie projektowania środowiskowego z myślą o podnoszeniu jakości opieki nad osobami starszymi w warunkach instytucjonalnych.
