Back in time … with Alzheimer’s

I love this idea!  Bring back the comfort of the familiar with dementia patients!  This set of rooms has been recreated (almost 100% accurately – TV wasn’t really around until the 1950’s) to represent the average home in the 1940’s.

For many people suffering from dementia our gadget laden modern world can be quite frightening, even if the dementia patient was a gadget geek before the onset of the disease.

Bring on the familiar sights and sounds of home!
