Become A Dementia Friend
Decorah Public Library and Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging are partnering to host a one-hour informational session for community members about becoming a Dementia Friend. The program will be held at Decorah Public Library from 3:30-4:30 on Tuesday, April 18. Kristie Wiltgen, Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging Regional Director will introduce participants to the growing movement of people who are helping community members live with dementia.
Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Participants in this one-hour session will learn some basics of dementia, what it’s like to live with the disease, and some tips for communicating with people who have dementia. Dementia Friends Iowa is administered by the Northeast Iowa Area on Aging and the Iowa Association of Area Agencies on Aging.
