I really enjoyed this article and video by The Washington Post (sent to me by a blog reader!) about how a German skilled nursing facility is recreating long-lost spaces for people with dementia. Their residents with dementia remember East Germany best as a Communist nation, and they remember the items and things that they saw every day. This SNF is recreating those spaces and bringing back some long-term memories.
Dementia care design is so important and so useful. You can even do this at home!
