The new standard for memory care

The Village may be the first memory care community of its kind in Canada, but there are many such communities around the world from de Hogeweyk in Holland, to the Green House Project in the US. There’s more research, science and thought-leadership on this model than on any other, and it’s evolving quickly. 

Here are a few of the resources we highly recommend. These aren’t endorsements of our community, but reading for those interested in better ways of providing seniors’ caregiving and dementia living.

“There is an urgent need to change the culture of care – shifting from an institutional model to a relationship-based approach – and to focus on the needs of people with dementia and their families.”

Alzheimer's Society of Canada

“Ensuring that the patient is at the centre — regardless of where or by whom they are being served — will lead to better, safer, more effective...care.”

National Post

“We must rethink our approach to managing risk in nursing homes, especially when doing so means limiting residents’ freedom to choose their own way.”

Globe and Mail

“Studies showed that residents [in a Village-style care home] experience a better quality of life than people in traditional nursing homes, and that their families were happier with the setting.”

The Atlantic

“When a health facility is visually engaging … it is more likely to both retain qualified employees and draw visitors. When visitors come back, the patients do better [and] they are less depressed.”
