Lori La Bey, host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio has a great conversation with Lenny White in Ireland who is the world’s first dementia friendly barber for men that can no longer get to the barber shop. He provides a pop-up service which creates a barber feel for my clients which includes: aroma therapy, a silent disco, a therapy dog and an amazing gathering with other men. Lenny also arranged to give out refurbished dolls for some of the ladies in the senior communities.
