CVC to host workshop on dementia friendly community @ The Sheridan Senior Center
Nov 9 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Center for a Vital Community at Sheridan College and Sheridan Senior Center will host a meeting and short work session for the five initiatives that came out of Creating a Dementia Friendly Community Study Circles last fall.  

The workshop will be held Wednesday from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Sheridan Senior Center dining room.

The five initiatives include:

• Dementia friends creating communities where people living with dementia feel accepted and understood. This involves training everyone from neighbors to waiters to clerks about dementia, how it affects people’s lives and how they can make a positive difference to people living with dementia in our county. 

• Community strategic planning for dementia friendly physical spaces encouraging meaningful activity and social interaction while reducing risks and providing quiet, safe spaces.

This also includes researching the inventory of facilities that care for dementia patients. 

• Building a health care continuum for dementia needs assuring integration of care across health and social services. This might encompass recruiting elder care professionals, providing ongoing education on eldercare and dementia for all health care professionals and promoting cognitive screenings, especially for early diagnosis.

• Support center(s) and navigators  where those living with dementia and their families can receive initial and ongoing support. It could either be a central place or several locations where trained volunteers can help guide those living with dementia and their caregivers to appropriate resources and navigate whatever processes are involved. 

• Caregiver support and respite  involving, including and caring for those living with dementia. That might look like support groups in outlying communities, short break programs and expanded senior companion programs.

Since the Senior Center was recently awarded a $1.1 million federal grant supporting the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Initiative, the Study Circles committee members and anyone else who is interested, will be learning what the next steps are and how they can help.

Everyone is invited to attend, regardless if they have been involved in the past.

The Sheridan Senior Center is located at 211 Smith St.
