Think you don’t know any families living with dementia?  You do.  Not sure if your input would be helpful to this discussion?  It will.

Please join us. Find out why dementia is considered a public health issue. Hear about successful community projects and some of the challenges.  Learn a process that could work in your community,  Share your own ideas to help increase dementia-capable services in communities across WV.  Then, take what you learn back to your community to expand supportive services there for families living with dementia.
