Abstract

This thesis explores how mobility research can contribute to the development of the concept of social health for dementia. Specifically, the focus is on the mobility of people with memory problems and dementia and how interactions with the social and built environment support social health and well-being. This thesis begins with an overview of dementia, social health and how understanding the mobility of people with memory problems and dementia can support social health and well-being. Additionally, the introduction describes the context of this thesis in both a description of the Dutch setting and how the study is embedded in the COORDINATEs project, a larger international, interdisciplinary research project.
