If you’ve not read about the Beatitudes Campus model of care for people with dementia, this New Yorker magazine article will change how you look at (and feel about) aging and caregiving:
The Sense Of An Ending: An Arizona nursing home offers new ways to care for people with dementia,” by Rebecca Mead, New Yorker, May 20, 2013.
If you can’t find the whole article on a free website, check your public library for the print or for a copy from one of their news and articles databases. (Or ask a friend with a New Yorker subscription for their cast-off May 20th issue.) (Or borrow mine.)
