Village to help Alzheimer's patients planned for San Diego

January 27, 2017

A San Diego nonprofit is building a village to help Alzheimer's patients, according to an article on the NPR website.

The village is being built as a place to spend time during the day — it's not residential. It's modeled on San Diego in the 1950s, complete with vintage cars, period music, payphones and shops.

A spokesperson from the George G. Glenner Alzheimer's Family Care Centers said research suggests this type of visual reminder might improve cognitive function and quality of life of Alzheimer's patients over 65.

The village will be housed in a building of about 8,500 square feet and will have anywhere between 15 and 25 fully designed stores, including a fully functioning movie theater.
