ONLINE MEETING: The Village Langley - an 'Enriched Living' Community Demonstrating a Better Way to Support People Living with Dementia
This meeting is being hosted by the Elder Law Section.

Speaker(s): Adrienne Alford-Burt, Executive Director of The Village Langley 
Time: Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 4:15pm - 5:30pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

The innovators behind the Village Langley envision a new standard of care for people living with dementia. The new community, which opened its doors to residents in Fall 2019, provides residents with support and care, while also holding residents’ autonomy in the highest possible regard. The Village features six single-storey cottage-like homes situated on five acres in the Fraser Valley. The Village boasts a number of amenities in addition to the residences: accessible walking paths, a community centre, sensory gardens, and a village plaza complete with a café. The vision that inspires the Village is a safe space where residents with dementia have access to community, support, and a stimulating environment, in addition to the care they require.

In this session, Adrienne Alford-Burt, Executive Director of The Village Langley will talk about the 5 key ingredients necessary to ensure a ‘better way’ to support people living with dementia. These ingredients are:

  • The Philosophical Foundation
  • The Guiding Principles and practices
  • The Physical Place and Space
  • The Right People
  • The Partnerships
