NN Dementia Friendly Training
Northampton Neighbors endorses the goal of Dementia Friendly Massachusetts (DFM) to increase the number of municipalities around the Commonwealth that commit to supporting those living with dementia, their families, and care partners.
All dementia-friendly communities share one thing: a commitment to make their neighborhood inclusive, welcoming those touched by dementia to continue to be active, contributing citizens.
Learning about dementia is key to reaching the shared goal of DFM. Please consider becoming a Dementia Friend, someone committed to being mindful and respectful toward people with dementia. By participating in a one-hour information session facilitated by Kathy Service, Nurse Practitioner and a Dementia Friends Champion, you will learn about common behaviors exhibited by people with dementia and basic, practical actions to communicate and support adults with memory impairment in our community.
