Town Square | Interactive experience for senior with dementia or Alzheimer’s
We spot more and more solutions for the problems elderly are facing. Like ‘Town Square’ which is a 1950s-style town that offers an interactive experience for seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Created by George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers and Senior Helpers, an association of caregivers. At this moment the ‘Town Square is targeting patients in their 70s and 80s, that’s why they replicated town squares from the 1953-1961 period. Each Town Square features 14 storefronts (including a pet store, a diner, and a movie theater), where caregivers guide visitors through specialized, therapeutic activities.
