Abstract: 

The study described in this report and the literature review of the environmental design, programming and staffing needs of dementia victims in institutions that preceded it (Gutman, 1989) were undertaken to provide the Pacific Health Care Society with information that would assist it in evaluating the need for and feasibility of expanding its service to include a Special Care Unit.
