Nursing home looks normal on outside – Inside is designed to be a familiar 1940s neighborhood

The groundbreaking facility in the video below is designed to help Alzheimer’s patients remember things from their past and make their living more comfortable in an unconventional way.

Within the walls of Lantern of Chagrin Valley, an Ohio assisted living facility for Alzheimer patients; there is actually a fake “town” that looks just like the cozy neighborhoods of the 1940’s. The creative interior design is all meant to help patients relieve their warm, youthful memories, which have been known to be the memories which those suffering from Alzheimer hold onto the longest.

With its hall carpets mimicking sidewalks and grass, interspersed with brick columns and street lamps, the center will instill a sense of familiarity to everyone who lived in the 1940’s. In the case of patients living here, this translates into them feeling more at ease, more comfortable and more independent in their day-to-day life.

You won’t believe how real the facility looks like. This concept of providing older patients with a comfortable, controlled environment that feels just like home is reshaping the way we care for our sick elderlies in the best way possible. Take a look inside the facility and don’t forget to share as well.
