Dementia Awareness Sessions

group gathered at dementia awareness meeting
A Dementia Awareness session held at a local Kiwanis club.

Dementia Friendly WNC provides free, interactive dementia awareness educational sessions. We provide up-to-date information and teach skills to help make communities more dementia friendly. 

Over 98% of participants in these sessions rate our programs as extremely effective.  Over 95% of attendees report increased comfort levels interacting with people with dementia.  Individuals attending sessions report reaching out to engage people living with dementia, and organizations report that they are making changes to support a more inclusive environment that is more welcoming and easier to navigate. 

Awareness sessions help reduce isolation and help people interact with people living with dementia in supportive ways. The entire community benefits when all members are valued and included.
