Dementia Friends Training
Wednesday, April 19, 6:30-7:30 on Zoom
We highly encourage residents of all ages, including youth through high school ages, to attend our Dementia Friends Training. If you saw someone living with dementia, would you recognize the signs? Would you know how to engage them? Check out this quick video to learn more about this initiative and its importance in our community.

Join the global movement to change the way people think, act and talk about dementia! In this session you’ll become a “Dementia Friend” by learning what dementia is, what it’s like to live with it, tips for communicating with people who have dementia, and simple things we can do in the Weston community to make a difference. By helping our community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for those touched by dementia. As a Dementia Friend, you will turn your new understanding of dementia into practical action that can help someone with this condition living in the Weston community.
