ACT on Alzheimer's Walker

Updated February 2018

In 2018, we are still working to become dementia friendly, and our efforts have expanded or changed beyond only being an ACT community.

What We’re Doing for Our Community

  • Since accomplishing our original ACT community goals, we continue to educate local businesses and organizations about dementia
  • Hosting a Dementia Friends Champion training to ensure trainers are available to conduct Dementia Friends information sessions
  • Updating our Community Resources brochure and keeping it stocked in area clinics, businesses and churches
