As part of the process to become a dementia-friendly community, towns and regions across the Commonwealth are asked to modify their physical environments to accommodate people who are not only living with physical impairments but also cognitive impairments. These changes to the environment can be minor – changing the color of a door to signal entrance, using contrast when repainting the interior of a building, or replacing signage OR can be incorporated into the design of a new center. Come and learn the specifics of building a dementia-friendly environment. The session will be held on November 18 at 2:00 pm. You can register here
