In this episode of The Shift Show, Zac and Katelyn Scott discuss the challenges of caregiving for someone with Dementia. Katelyn is in gerontology, which is the science of aging. She studied recreational therapy and has a passion for working with people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Katelyn discusses the future possibilities of care social networks. In Calgary, there will be the very first Dementia community in Canada ever created. This will help people living with Dementia understand and communicate in a supported and safe atmosphere. They call it the ‘Memory Cottage’.
