An article by Allison Rupp from the Jackson Hole Star Tribune discusses one alternative model for long-term care facilities that provide care for Alzheimer’s patients.
Mary Hein, along with a group of community members, wants to build several “pod-type nursing homes” for people with dementia where residents eat home-cooked meals at a dining room table and have their own room and bathroom.
Residents would see the same staff members every day and feel more comfortable and less confused in the home-like environment.
