Dementia Villages and the Person Directed Approach - Adrienne Alford-Burt (The Village Langley, Canada)
Manage episode 286819107 series 2813275
On Tuesday the Aged Care Enrichment Podcast heads to the land of Maple Syrup, Ice Hockey and Mounties to hear from our guest, Adrienne Alford-Burt.
Adrienne is the Executive director of the Village Langley, a dementia friendly retirement community in Vancouver that applies a social-relational model of care for its residents, or as Adrienne likes to call them; "the villagers".
Adrienne came to work in aged care through an early career as a Director in Canada's office for Veteran Affairs.
In this episode we talk about the quality of standardisation and personalisation of care, why she believes the person centred approach is outdated and insights into the state of aged care in Canada.
