Topic: Dementia Friends Training
Dementia Friends is a global movement that is striving to create more dementia friendly communities by changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, Dementia Friends is underway in Minnesota and across the United States. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for someone living with dementia.
As paralegals in the estate planning, estate administration, conservatorship or guardianship fields, this friendly and interactive session will increase our understanding of dementia and will help to identify signs or symptoms to look for as we work with the aging population. The session will also discuss the small things that you can do to make a difference for people affected by dementia.
ALTHOUGH YOU ARE MORE THEN WELCOME TO ATTEND REMOTELY, THIS SESSION IS MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN ATTENDED IN PERSON.
