The Apartment Preview
Join AFA at a sneak preview event of its newest educational initiative: The Apartment–a full scale model studio residence designed to showcase ways individuals can make a home “dementia-friendly.”
Each area of The Apartment–including the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room and dining area–highlights different steps and adaptations to enhance quality of life and improve safety for someone with dementia. From simple choices like paint colors and lighting to high-tech products like a smart refrigerator, The Apartment showcases many tools families can utilize.
AFA will be unveiling The Apartment to the general public in May as part of Older Americans Month, but is inviting supporters to be among the first to take a virtual tour of The Apartment, see its many features and learn about how this unique initiative will be used as a nationwide teaching tool to help improve quality of life for individuals living with dementia-related illnesses and their caregivers.
