My friends at A Place for Mom and I are very excited to share a compilation piece recently published by PBS Next Avenue.
Welcome to ‘Dementia Village’ is based on several of our articles regarding a unique dementia care community located in Holland.
At Hogewey, residents have the freedom to roam about without restriction. They can visit with friends, shop for groceries, stop by a cafe for lunch, or just relax by the pond and enjoy a sunny afternoon. Nurses and caregivers, dressed in street clothes, are there to provide 24×7 care; however, the environment is far from “clinical.”
Sound interesting? You can read more in the PBS Next Avenue article, which can be found here.

I recently watched this program. I wish more countries & states would build places like this instead of the regular nursing home settings.
