I have been invited to tour and learn how to treat dementia individuals from Hogeweyk of Amsterdam. I am leaving at the end of the month to exchange ideas on my concept and their concept. I am very excited to have this amazing opportunity. More information to come later.
The Hogeweyk® paved the way for a new way of care in The Netherlands and has become a great inspiration for others in world who are looking for humanizing care for the growing numbers diagnosed with dementia. Years of experience and gained knowledge results in a clear vision on the future of dementia care. The Hogeweyk® is one outcome but applying that same vision many other outcomes are possible. We strongly believe in the deinstitutionalization of care and the need to emancipate people living with dementia and include them in society.
