Becoming a Dementia Friend
- Wednesday, October 5
3:00pm - 4:00pm
With Cindy Beel-Bates, PhD and Paula Polinski – Life Enrichment Specialist with Clark Retirement Community
You don’t have to be a dementia expert to be dementia friendly. In fact, it’s great if you’re NOT a dementia expert! A Dementia Friend recognizes that anyone and everyone could have dementia, and looks for signs of it when something is amiss. When they spot a person who has dementia, they know how to speak with that person and how to help. If there is a person with dementia in his/her family, a Dementia Friend can be helpful in supporting the person and the rest of the family throughout the dementia journey. Come to this training workshop to learn how you can become a Dementia Friend.
