When someone receives a dementia diagnosis, it impacts more than the individual; family members, employers, neighbors and communities. Understanding Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can help communities at large support those with dementia. Join Colleen Fritsch, Master Trainer with Dementia Friends to learn what it means to be a dementia friend.  

 Whether you’ve never heard of the disease or you’re actively providing care, we hope to provide you with tools to improve dementia awareness and empower you to be more cognizant of how we all can help someone with dementia or a caregiver. We’ll also discuss common dementia misconceptions and share Alzheimer’s friendly business practices.
