Pioneered in the Netherlands, “dementia village” is a simulated town designed for reminiscent therapy specifically for older adults who lived in the 1950s.  Senior Helpers, a major national home care franchisor, has partnered with George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers, Inc. to bring the unique experience to seniors in Chula Vista, California area.

Helpers will be providing caregivers to an adult day care center called Town Square. The town will feature a black and white movie theater, a working diner and a 1959 Ford.  The town will be able to accommodate 75 patients a day at a cost $95 for a full day and $65 for a half day.  This offers a more affordable option for patients who need care but cannot afford home healthcare.  Filling a much-needed niche in the home health industry.  The center is expected to open in April.
