1950's replica town uses reminiscence therapy for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients

Alzheimer’s and Dementia affect 47 million people worldwide and that number is expected to explode to 75 million by 2030.

The cost of caring for patients is in the hundreds of billions not to mention the stress on families to try and care for their loved ones.

But a new treatment center that’s just opening near San Diego, California may help both patients and families deal with the devastating disease in a very unique way.

As CGTN’s May Lee reports, this is just the beginning for a project that plans to go global.
