Tucked away on the edges of a Danish forest, Dagmarsminde is a small nursing home for patients with severe dementia. The founding nurse May Bjerre Eiby has no interest in specific dementia diagnoses or medicine, since neither is improving the quality of life for the 11 residents. Instead, May and her staff have developed a new kind of treatment inspired by the methods that Florence Nightingale introduced 150 years ago. As an alternative to the sterility and indifference that often comes with long-term eldercare, their method is based on hugs, conversation, laughter, and community.
