Mindful Hearts: For individuals with Alzheimer's and chronic dementia
In 2011, the Winnifred Stewart Association saw a support gap in the care provided to their aging clientele, specifically those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Over the past four years, the Winnifred Stewart Association has been diligently working towards a model of care that fills that support gap. Using a number of resources and best practices from around the world, the Winnifred Stewart Association has developed Mindful Hearts, a Winnifred Stewart Approach.
