Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are awful afflictions that are extremely tough to deal with, both medically and socially. Both the patient and their families suffer, but the Hogeway Center in the Netherlands offers a silver lining, blazing a trail with an innovative form of care for patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The doctors have created a sort of safe haven in a village that’s just for the patients, giving them the freedom to roam the town and lead normal lives. De Hogeweyk, the enclosed community, is a pretty awesome little sanctuary for the elderly with these diseases. Nestled in the heart of Weesp, this amazing place has everything. With a grocery store, parks, a restaurant, a bar and a theater, this 23 home neighborhood houses 152 seniors that have Dementia and Alzheimer’s, giving them everything they’d need to lead normal lives. Stuff like this, people being the change they want to see in this world, is true, genuine humanity, and we respect and appreciate that. Hats off to the doctors responsible for making this world a better place, one patient at a time.
