Dementia Friendly Wyoming to launch campaign with kick-off event @ The SMH offices downtown
May 17 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

SHERIDAN — Dementia Friendly Wyoming will kick off an educational program for Sheridan businesses and the community from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Sheridan Memorial Hospital offices downtown.

Twelve volunteers are trained and ready to make presentations to businesses throughout Sheridan. Attend this event to learn more about the business training and sign up for a session. Presentations for management and employees will be offered in 30 minute to one-hour sessions.

More than 5.4 million people are living with dementia in the U.S. One in two households will be affected in the next 10 years. Businesses have customers living with dementia, often accompanied by their care partners. Businesses may also have employees who are caring for someone with dementia. Organizers of the training say supporting people affected by dementia is good business.

This campaign will help businesses recognize the signs of dementia, learn communication skills and know how to identify resources.
