Dementia Friends Information
Session at LiveWell
This Dementia Friends Information Session has been canceled. Here’s why:
LiveWell is taking steps to ensure our staff, residents, families and clients stay safe and healthy as we guard against COVID-19 (the new Coronavirus).
We are following the direction from the Connecticut Department of Public Health to restrict visitations. This means that effective March 10, 2020 we are suspending many community activities typically hosted at LiveWell. Our hope is to relocate upcoming events or to offer them via video-conference or webinar.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We will continue to keep you updated on our efforts and any new measures we are taking.

About this Event
Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends movement is now spreading through Connecticut. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.
To become a Dementia Friend, you join others in a one-hour information session to learn five key messages and a bit about what it’s like to live with dementia. As a Dementia Friend, your new understanding and attitudes will guide the practical actions you can take to help someone with dementia living in your community.
