  • Village People: Person-Centered Dementia Environments, Ideas from Both Sides of the Pond

    LeadingAge Pennsylvania Annual ConferenceMax Winters June 20, 2018, Hershey, PA

    As a new wave of for-profit developers and providers continues to enter the market for dementia care services, non-profit and mission-based organizations find themselves having to elevate their offerings and communicate their expertise in new ways. Organizations on both sides are looking for new touchstones and ideas to incorporate into their philosophy and messaging, and one emerging source of discussion is the idea of the dementia village, pioneered by Hogewey Dementia Village in the Netherlands. Much of the discussion is centered on recurring imagery of the village’s market, and the vision of a nostalgic ‘main street’. However, the true success of Hogewey lies in its ability to treat each resident as an individual as opposed to an occupied bed, while still balancing the realities of running a care community. Hogewey’s fanatical approach elevates normalcy for the resident above all else in both philosophy of care and the built environment. Using Hogewey as a jumping off point, this session will interrogate current best practices and posit new directions for person-centered dementia care in the realms of operations, programming, and the built environment.

TKTS Booth (opened in 2009) is the sculptural centerpiece of Times Square’s new lease on life as NYC’s town square; as the world’s largest all-glass public structure, TKTS has also become an international icon for the city, akin to Lady Liberty.
