About your Speaker:
Rosemary Bakker is on faculty at the Weill Cornell Medical College in New
York and is the developer and Director of ThisCaringHome.org, a multimedia
website for caregivers of people with dementia.
She is a gerontologist, a certified interior designer, and a former
caregiver to her mother, Arlene, who had Alzheimer’s disease. She
understands first-hand how a dementia-friendly environment can make
caregiving less difficult and more fulfilling. Rosemary has engaged in
real-life testing of over 50 household and technology products, from
grab-bar fastening systems to fall monitors, environmental controls, and
Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

Bakker is a leading expert on the role of interior design and technology in
promoting health and wellness at every stage of life. She has conducted
numerous presentations on the topic to diverse audiences, ranging from
health care professionals, interior designers, housing experts, and Fortune
500 corporations to the Centers for Disease Control, the Alzheimer’s
Association, and the United Nations. Ms. Bakker has been an invited speaker
on CBS, NBC, and PBS and was featured in the Public Lives column of The New
York Times and in AARP’s Modern Maturity. She has won numerous awards for
her innovative work in interior design for healthy longevity and has
authored two books on the topic: Penguin Books (Elderdesign, 1997) and Lark
Books (AARP Guide to Beautiful Living with Universal Design, 2010). You can
