Creating Dementia-Friendly Health Care Organizations – January CARE Connections

How can healthcare organizations become more dementia friendly, to support the growing number of people living with dementia?

Read what family caregivers and providers suggest in the January issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter from the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“My mom was totally fine, though she had never been in the hospital except to have babies. She was totally comfortable because this nurse had taken the time to just sit with her and listen to her stories.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and Assistant Professor Megan Zuelsdorff, information about the CARE U train-the-trainer program to improve education for direct care staff, plus resources and news relevant to older adult health.

Sign up to receive future issues by email on the CARE website.
