Breaking barriers: the inspiring journey of a young graduate living in a nursing home

Meet Teun Toebes, the young graduate whose life took an unexpected turn when he chose to live in a nursing home alongside elderly residents. At 24, Teun found purpose in caring for those with dementia, building deep connections, and challenging the dehumanizing system. He introduced Friday drinks, camping evenings, and outings to bring joy back into their lives.

Now, his book “The Housemates” is inspiring change, and he’s exploring dementia care worldwide. Teun’s journey teaches us that money alone won’t solve the problem, but treating everyone with freedom and friendship can transform lives, even in the face of dementia.
