The New York Times explores a global movement in “As Cases Soar, ‘Dementia Villages’ Look Like the Future of Home Care” by Joann Plockova. With the number of dementia diagnoses rising sharply, the article highlights a shift in care aimed at integrating people with dementia into the communities around them. We are proud to be working with United Methodist Communities to design the first US project, Avandell, inspired by the Hogeweyk dementia village model in The Netherlands. The Avandell development, outside of Holmdel, NJ, will include homes for 105 residents, a town center, bistro, grocery store, neurocognitive clinic, and a resource hub open to the public.
