This training from the Dementia-Friendly America National Network will ensure that you are!
Arizona has the second-highest growth rate for Alzheimer’s – which is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and just one of the dementias you can be diagnosed with.
Is dementia a normal part of aging?
Do only older adults get it?
Is it more than just a memory problem?
If you are diagnosed, what kind of quality of life can someone expect?
Our workshop will cover these questions and more, including what dementia actually is, what the warning signs are, and how to create an environment that is friendly to those who have been diagnosed.
The question isn’t about whether or not you will run into someone with dementia, but when. If you want to be someone who can respond with respect for what they are going through and act in a way that is safe for both you and them, then this presentation is a must.
