2019 January Lunch
This presentation will provide you with an introduction to dementia and help you to recognize when someone may be living with the disease. This presentation includes helpful strategies and tips for communicating with people who are living with dementia and where you can go for more help. Ultimately, this presentation aims to bring us one step closer to a Dementia-Friendly Society where people living with dementia are supported and included in their communities.
