Dementia Friendly Nevada presents the
Dementia Friends Information Session
The Dementia Friends program is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. In the Dementia Friends Information Session, we cover the basics of dementia, discuss differences between dementia and normal aging, go through activities to better understand what it’s like to live with dementia, and then review strategies for effective communication with someone living with dementia. The goal of these sessions is to equip community members with a level of knowledge and comfort regarding dementia that will inspire them to walk toward people living with dementia who need support, rather than walk away.
We will be offering one session per month, online via Zoom.
12:00 – 1:00 PM, on the third Wednesday of each month
