De Hogeweyk part of nursing home organisation Hogewey is a gated model village setting in Weesp, in The Netherlands. It is notable because it has been designed specifically as a pioneering care facility for elderly people with dementia.[1] The major advances achieved by the approach of all-day reminiscence therapy at Hogewey, compared to traditional nursing homes, is that the residents with dementia are more active and require less medication.[2] The setting has been compared to that depicted in the film The Truman Show.[3] Carers, doctors and nurses work around the clock to provide the 152 residents the necessary 24-hour care.
