LiveWell Leads Drive for Dementia Friendly Living in Southington
LiveWell of Southington continues to be the state leader for Dementia Friends Connecticut, and has been growing stronger as more and more local businesses and individuals join in on the initiative to make Southington dementia-friendly. According to some studies, 70% of people living with dementia live at home and remain independent. They still go out to go grocery shopping, going to the library, using the bank or visiting restaurants and coffee shops. By becoming a certified dementia friendly business, staff members are trained in how to recognize the signs of a person living with dementia so that they might be able to offer assistance when needed.
