Village Landais Alzheimer offers person-centred support and non-pharmacological approaches, backed up by an attitude and therapeutic activities that preserve, as far as possible, the cognitive and practical abilities of residents. All staff must be enthusiastic and have a good understanding of support needs, especially the importance of assessing the patient’s remaining capacities to avoid exposing them to failure.
A place of innovation, where other institutions or home support services can get help or discover new models of care. The Village will have a Resource Centre for research, bringing together French Alzheimer’s specialists, training for healthcare professionals and medico-social management to disseminate the best therapeutic practices.
