Individually-owned, adaptable homes designed to maximize abilities of those with dementia

city center’s restaurant, store, club house and more, are created to welcome and encourage public use
Why NOT now? People with dementia need care now. WE can achieve success by building on the momentum that already exists here in Sheboygan County. Now is the time for true pioneers to emerge in an industry that needs effective leaders and innovators. Now is the time to raise the bar!
Why a neighborhood concept?
People living with dementia need visionaries to turn what was once only imagined into a reality. Much like the Hogeweyk In the Netherlands, this concept of a Dignity of Risk lifestyle embraces innovative alternatives to traditional living options.
We love our community an want to to see it become a recognized center of dementia excellence. Our community has the capability, the resources a collaborative nature and the passion for innovative ideas. As a community, would we not want quality alternatives for our own futures and for the futures of our loved ones?
To move from imagination, to vision, to reality, your generous contributions to this
non-profit community project are necessary
