Crafting Tools for Dementia Friendly Care and Communities – June CARE Connections

How can professionals, front-line staff and communities better communicate with and support people living with dementia?

Read how SoN faculty and staff developed the new “Dementia Friendly Toolkit: Role Play Simulations for Care and Community Settings” in the June issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

“The project started by listening to the needs of people most affected by dementia,” says Sarah Endicott, DNP, APNP, GNP-BC, a Clinical Associate Professor and one of four people at the UW–Madison School of Nursing who developed the training materials.

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and SoN faculty member Paula Woywod, and news and events relevant to older adult health. Read the issue here.
