Tasmania will become home to what is being touted as Australia’s first suburban village designed specifically for people with dementia.
As well as 15 tailored houses, the village will have a supermarket, cinema, cafe, beauty salon and gardens.
The $25-million Korongee complex will transform a derelict site at Glenorchy in Hobart’s north.
The village will be based on international best-practice models, including De Hogeweyk village in the Netherlands, where residents have been found to live longer and take fewer medications.
