MCOA, Mass Mobility, and the Alzheimer’s Association are pleased to announce a special training session for drivers. The Dementia-Friendly Transportation Training program will offer drivers of all types of tools to recognize and work with people living with dementia. This session will be of interest to volunteer drivers who provide one-on-one transportation to older adults, Councils on Aging that run van services using paid drivers as well as match community volunteers with older adults, and transit drivers who drive buses and paratransit. Meghan Lemay, M.S., Regional Manager, Western MA, Alzheimer’s Association will provide the training. Meghan also brings to the session her experience as a bus driver for a Senior Center.
