Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about Dementia. The Dementia Friends movement is underway in Indiana and all classes in Hendricks County are coordinated by Hendricks County Senior Services. By helping our community understand what Dementia is and how it affects families, each of us can make a difference for people in Hendricks County touched by Dementia.
Dementia educator, Helee Adkins, will talk about the differences between normal aging and Alzheimer’s, and about the different ways one can communicate better with someone that has a Dementia related disease. Come learn how we can help them and their family members feel like a valuable part of our community.
