An Alzheimer's Village on Earth

Someone once asked in the comments section, what is going to happen to you if you get Alzheimer's disease? I'm moving to Hogewey.

I like to think. I like to imagine. Many times I have imagined a kinder, gentler place for the deeply forgetful.

Well truth be known, I first imagined a kinder, gentler place for Dotty and me. I already made that happen in our own little Alzheimer's World.

Kind, gentle, creating an environment based on trust. Along the path from burden to joy.

Dr. Murali Doraiswamy, author of the Alzheimer's Action Plan and chief of biological psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., said the idea could be "a game changer" in Alzheimer's care.
