Dutch Village Created for Patients with Dementia


A village in the Netherlands has been created just for patients with dementia.

“Hogeweyk” looks like any other village with restaurants, supermarkets, gardens, and a pedestrian boulevard.  Unlike most villages, security gates and fences surround the village, and health care professionals walk throughout the village in street clothes. 

Many of those involved with this project have declared it a success, and similar towns are being planned around the world.

Nice initiative. I think it is good to have a place where people with dementia can live in peace.
