The Dutch sensible approach to dementia and Alzheimer

?1430150123

"... (the)isolated village of Hogewey lies on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the small town of Wheesp. Dubbed “Dementia Village” by CNN, Hogewey is a cutting-edge elderly-care facility—roughly the size of 10 football fields—where residents are given the chance to live seemingly normal lives. With only 152 inhabitants, it’s run like a more benevolent version of The Truman Show, if The Truman Show were about dementia and Alzheimer’s patients."

A gated town where those afflicted live their lives in a more humane and creative way

4. We need to develop Holodeck technology

and then beam Trump into a Holodeck fantasy world while he is asleep. That way he can live out his fantasies and delusions and the rest of us will be safe. Star Trek:Insurrection wasn't a great movie but it was not without useful ideas LOL.
