We pair college students with dementia residents for weekly 1-to-1 visits.
Students are trained to meet those with dementia where they are at. Working with family members and staff, they learn about the person beneath the disease--their passions, their story--and focus on discovering new ways to make the most of the present. We must continue to live now.
You may wear a backpack rather than a jet-pack, but you'll be surprised how far your smile can go.
