Teun Toebes

Teun Toebes advocates for a higher quality of life for individuals affected by dementia, as he strongly believes that every person deserves the best possible standard of living, regardless of age or medical condition. This led him to live in a closed ward in residential elder care for over 2.5 years, where he could immerse himself in the lives of individuals with dementia and learn from their experiences. Teun emphasizes the importance of listening to those living with dementia in order to bring about positive change not just for them, but for society as a whole. He believes it is time for the worlds of dementia and the wider community to come together.
