Special lighting and window glass can help calm Alzheimer’s patients, improving their quality of life and making life easier for their caregivers, according to a yearlong SIUC (Southern Illinois University Carbondale – Fall 2005) study.

Melinda LaGarce, an associate professor of interior design, conducted the research, a follow-up to a preliminary study she did with two other SIUC researchers.
