Bryghuset – On the journey to become a Spark of Life Centre of Excellence.
Bryghuset (the House of the Brewery) is Denmark’s first Dementia Town with 125 apartments, extensive outdoor areas, shopping mall, cafes etc.
The Dementia Town is a mini community enabling people with dementia to experience the highest possible degree of freedom, safety, the greatest quality of life and independence.
In 2016, the local Shire Council of Svendborg made the decision to send two key people to the International Spark of Life Master Course so they could bring back the philosophy to be introduced in the Dementia Town.
Annette Soeby, Spark of Life Master Practitioner
Annette is a Registered Nurse, Project Leader and the spokesperson for the Dementia Town. She has extensive background in running residential care facilities and is passionate about forging new ground for people living in care.
Charlotte Gehring, Spark of Life Master Practitioner
Charlotte is a Registered Nurse and Dementia Co-ordinator. For the last two years, Charlotte has been an integral part of developing Denmark’s very first Dementia Town Bryghuset in Svendborg.
Together Annette and Charlotte are pioneering the implementation of the Spark of Life Philosophy, guiding and educating the team so that Bryghuset can become the first Spark of Life Centre of Excellence in Denmark and in Europe.
