Jacqui Smith, Managing Director of Sussex based interior design practice HomeSmiths Ltd, is an experienced healthcare designer, specialising in dementia design and how the built environment can support people living with sensory and cognitive impairments. Designing for health and well-being, physical and mental, and the role colour plays, is at the core of her work. In November 2012 Jacqui permanently lost the sight in her left eye and has since combined her profession with her personal experience of impaired vision both in her own work and in promoting best practice to others in the design community. Working with her award winning cabinet maker husband David, their portfolio includes both new build and refurbishment projects in Extra Care, sheltered housing, assisted living, dementia and nursing homes, homes for young adults with learning disabilities and hospice/end of life care. Jacqui is an accredited member of SBID and HomeSmiths’ projects have made finalist in a number of awards for Healthcare and Wellness design. Jacqui was Chair of Haywards Heath Dementia Friendly Community from 2018-2021.
