A few days ago my daughter sent me a link to a recent and exciting news story: Canada’s first ‘dementia village’ is set to open its doors in Langley, BC, next year. The Village’s design was inspired by Hogeweyk, the world’s first dementia village, in The Netherlands; the main difference being the Village will be in a rural setting on five acres.
Their website: The Village.
Exciting or what? We won’t discuss the cost to stay at this facility, BUT, we’re headed in the right direction, no?
The other incredible resource that I wanted to share was actually given to me just yesterday by the dietary manager at work. I had pointed her to the Village website and was telling her about my dreams for continuing care… She invited me into her dream world; The Marsan Recipe Database, which is a comprehensive recipe puree program – check it out!
Be sure to send me any fantastic resources or news stories that you come across!
