The Future of Eldercare is Bright

An organization called Hogeweykh is spreading the initiative to support all elderly individuals in living their best lives “with and despite their limitations due to dementia” with their care concept.

I read a wonderful article today that shared an innovative living experience that allows those elderly individuals living with dementia, the ability to live life to the fullest.  The author describes dementia as a heartbreaking syndrome

“Dementia, at its simplest definition, confuses the brain—affecting memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgment. 2

And when typical nursing homes are giving off sterile, hospital-like vibes, those experiencing dementia are just left confused as to why they’re living there.

“The result is a town where the residents are encouraged to roam freely; to stop by the grocery store, to sit at the bar with friends, have their hair done, or take a stroll through the park. Where each of the 23 houses is home to a small group of individuals matched together by interest, increasing the likelihood of forming meaningful friendships. And where life is still life: dishes are done, you can smell the food cooking on the stove, and the laundry gets folded.”

Scams and Schemes

Protect Yourself from Fraud

Whether it’s guilting you into investing, instilling fear in you, or giving you the impression that they are professionals, con artists know exactly how to persuade you. Don’t rush yourself and don’t allow others to rush you. Take your time when making investment decisions, remain skeptical of unsolicited offers or offers that seem like they are too good to be true, and be sure that your money is always accessible.
