Ageing in Paradise

Altern im Paradies

Alzheimer's and other types of dementia are increasingly becoming a scourge of humanity. Around 35 million people worldwide are affected and that number is rising. Successful treatment seems far off in the future. That's why it's even more important to allow patients to age in dignity. There is an 'Alzheimer's Village' near Amsterdam. Thanks to attentive care dementia sufferers are able to lead the most normal lives there possible in the familiarity of a Dutch village. In Thailand dementia sufferers from Switzerland and Germany are looked after in the 'Village of Forgetting'. Nursing homes that offer good and inexpensive care for elderly people from the West are booming in Eastern Europe too. Ageing in Paradise has taken a look at the different models of care and examines the economic and moral problems that society has to face in light of an ageing population.
