An Amazing Village Designed Just For People with Dementia

When I saw this on FB I felt I had to share to share this story and information. I would like the article to reach as many people as possible.

Elder care for dementia patients often carries such a sad and depressing outlook. When I read this I thought, “Thank goodness, there is a more humane approach to this situation.”

I hope this idea takes off. My mother had Alzheimer’s and I would have definitely investigated this further if it had been available. If I should ever be in need of supervision, this is something that I would like my children to keep in mind if it should be come necessary.

I am a big advocate in discussing elder care with my children. When I wrote Shopping for Nursing Homes in the Chicken Soup Book Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias, I had no idea that this would someday become another option. With the possibility of this type of care I believe more families will receive the care and compassion so anxiously sought.
