I am happy to say that the Monticello Senior Center is one of three area senior centers that received a grant to help educate people about dementia.
I think most of us know someone with dementia. Do you want to become more knowledgeable about the disease? We would like to extend a free 1 hour of virtual education about dementia. Please consider signing up to become a Dementia Friend - you can learn a lot in an hour!
The one-hour session is a face-to-face discussion led by a Dementia Friends Champion; it’s not a formal training or education session. The session is informal and includes fun activities and interaction. You’ll learn what dementia is and tips for communicating with people who have dementia. Everyone who attends is asked to consider a practical action that can help someone in their community. The action can be big or as small — every action counts! And maybe can even help your business.
If you would like to attend the virtual education session, please contact me to obtain the link to the VERY SIMPLE registration!
The upcoming training options are Tuesday July 28th at 2 pm or 7 pm.
The next training date option is Monday August 17th at 2 pm or 7 pm.
Please feel free to pass this on to others.
I hope you will participate – just contact me for the link and for grant reporting purposes, please let me know your city of residence and phone number.
