A $28 million village is planned in southwestern France as part of an experimental treatment for Alzheimer’s patients, according to an article on the Newsweek website.
The complex will house 120 people and will include shops, a gym, a restaurant and a small farm, allowing residents to walk freely and maintain a social life. Construction of the facility has begun near the town in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and will open in 2019.
Alzheimer’s patients who live in the new facilities will be confined to a 12-acre, gated piece of land.
The building plans include four housing complexes designed to resemble the region’s historic bastide settlements.
