“Let Me Say This About That” - Architecture as Empowerment for People Living with Dementia

Jennifer Sodo and Max Winters share a core belief about architecture: It’s not just supposed to look nice, but actually improve people’s lives. The senior associates at architecture and design firm Perkins Eastman joined Susan Ryan on “Elevate Eldercare” in Episode 101, to discuss how the built and natural environments are essential to creating inclusive, empowering communities for people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Jennifer and Max visited Hogewey – a unique and controversial dementia care community in the Netherlands. In this edition of “Let Me Say This About That”, Marla and Mary take a deeper dive into their white paper entitled “Missing Main Street”.  We explore the three main concepts and the 11 patterns they say can be applied to any existing or future dementia environment. Get ready for a unique discussion on architecture and design!   Read the full white paper “Missing Main Street”: https://www.perkinseastman.com/insights/designing-better-dementia-communities/ Register for GHP’s newest in-person and virtual event, DementiaVerse: thegreenhouseproject.org/events/dementiaverse
