The Environmental Audit Tool – High Care (EAT-HC) can be used to audit facilities where people with dementia are less mobile or where residents are still very active.

The purpose of the EAT- HC is to provide managers and staff of aged and health care facilities caring for people with dementia with the means to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the physical environments they use.

The tool’s design encourages structured conversations, and enables modifications to be planned that will assist people with dementia to live at their full potential.

When conducting the EAT-HC it is recommended that you also use the scoring sheet which enables the EAT- HC to be completed by a number of people and the scores determined by the consensus view.  This encourages discussion, familiarizes more people with the principles of good design and facilitates ownership of the results of the audit.
