At the last London Family AgeSmart Lecture, Dr. John Zeisel, Ph.D., internationally renowned memory care expert and author of I’m Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer’s Care, shared details about his revolutionary, non-pharmacological approach to dementia care. Attendees learned about The Hope Model offered through his unique and life-changing I’m Still Here philosophy, and walked away with new hope that they can create a life worth living for themselves and for their loved ones at any stage of memory loss.
