Featyred Speaker: Eloy van Hal, Founder and Senior Managing Consultant of De Hogeweyk, Weesp, the Netherlands.
The Founder and Director of the Dementia Village in Weesp, Netherlands, Eloy van Hal, will provide an operational overview of the renowed facility created in 2009 as an alternative to traditional institutionalized care provided in nursing homes.
This village, for individuals with Alzheimer's or other cognitive impairments, groups residents with shared interests and backgrounds in family-like settings in carefully designed environments emphasizing open, outdoor spaces and amenities like parks, a restaurant, grocery store and auditorium. It's a new twist on assisted living, enabling residents to stay active with trained staff helping to maintain their freedom and abilities. Following the presentation, a panel discussion will focus on how to bring these innovations to senior and dementia-related facilities in New York.
