My Mom would like this place.

I've never been to Amsterdam but this might be a good reason go go. My mother would love the "housekeeping themed house". She grew up doing chores before school every day and she never lost the habit of keeping a nice house. Lately she goes around "dusting" and "washing windows". She always considered housework to be a form of recreation. Listen to the audio portion within the following link...it's very uplifting.
The village where people have dementia – and fun
Click on the washing windows link for a good laugh.

Can you believe that? Absolutely amazing. I'm going to print it out. If only the US would start promoting this too. Thank you!

I have seen this before. How wonderful to be able to wander and be safe too. To do some of the things one could before with a sense of accomplishment. Like going to the store! To be able to be outside. Bravo Europe!!

Cleaning windows is breathtaking!!

Thank you for sharing this article. I found it very informative.

That place looks heavenly. It concerns me that there is a separation between those who like religion and then those who like music/art. The two go hand in hand to me.
That window washing made me queasy! :-)

I am that point now too. My father is becoming more than my mother can handle. What I wouldn't give to find a place like that here for them.
