Dementia Friendly Culpeper In partnership with the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce
Aging Together is immensely pleased to have the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce as a core partner for Dementia Friendly Culpeper. As a collaboration, along with the efforts of our lead volunteer trainer John Beck, we are seeing a growth of business participation in downtown Culpeper to be dementia friendly. Regular training sessions are held either as group staff sessions, or as train-the-trainer sessions.
Our trained volunteers can provide a 30-minute session for your staff or other group to help your organization become dementia aware.
In the session, your group will learn:
- basic facts about Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders that cause dementia
- 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease
- tips for communicating and interacting with a person living with dementia
- tips for creating a dementia-friendly physical space and discuss case studies (90 minute sessions only).
In return for participating, Aging Together will provide a window label to publicly identify the organization as dementia friendly, and identify the organization as dementia friendly on the Aging Together website and in other promotional materials. Marketing your organization as dementia friendly offers a mutually beneficial relationship when you welcome and reassure a demographic not always comfortable with public interaction.
If your organization is interested in being trained as a Dementia Friendly organization please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-829-6405 (leave a message and we will get back you you quickly).
