Along with St. John’s Home, Al Power hosted the informal gathering in Rochester, New York earlier this month. He is an Eden Mentor at St. John’s, a long term care community in Rochester. He’s a geriatrician, author, blogger, musician and public speaker. Whatever label you apply, he is a man who has thought deeply about dementia and aging, and is working to change our approach to both.
His book Dementia Beyond Drugs: Changing the Culture of Care will make you question your assumptions, and might make you more optimistic about the future of aging and dementia care.
