Event Description:
The mission of the Chamber Aging in Place Business Network is to provide education about local businesses and services that support personal choice and vitality in the second half of life, and to provide a forum to develop relationships with the members of the roundtable who serve in that community.

Dementia Friends Training
A Dementia Friend is someone who attends an in-person session, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Anyone of any age can be Dementia Friend - we all have a part to play in creating dementia friendly communities!


All attendees must register.
Attendees will receive a certification of participation.
