This Month’s Presentation:
Dementia Friendly Information Session
Presented by Diane Watson and Allegra Joffe, Dementia Friendly Fairfax Champion Trainers
Learn how to become a dementia friend and turn your new understanding of dementia into a practical action that can help someone living in your community.
AFTER PARTICIPATING IN A DEMENTIA FRIENDS SESSION, PARTICIPANTS CAN:
• Describe dementia and know the most common type of dementia
• State the five key messages about dementia
• Explain one approach to effectively communicate with a person with dementia
• Commit to an action as a Dementia Friend in your community
Dementia Friendly Fairfax envisions our community as a place where people living with dementia and their care partners will be able to engage in a variety of activities, be supported in the highest quality of life, and can live independently for as long as possible.
