    About the Program

    How to recognize someone who might be living with dementia and how to interact in ways that produces meaningful engagement...Takes the fear and stigma out of dementia, sharing my dad's story and the story of what we are doing in the community.   Since almost 1/3 of people in the workforce are in caregiving roles and those caring for people with dementia are at higher risk for depression, this is a timely topic for anyone in the community.
