Become a Dementia Friend! July 23 or July 25

Dementia Friends for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Cuyahoga DD is proud to host the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging's Become a Dementia Friend sessions. Dementia Friends for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities gives people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do to make a difference in the lives of those affected. Please join us and invite a friend to this free, interactive program. Registration is required and space is limited.

Most adults with an intellectual and/or developmental disability live in community settings, either independently or with support from families, friends and service providers. With advanced age, they may experience age-related conditions and diseases, including dementia. Dementia Friends for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities delivers information on dementia incidence, risk factors, and unique signs and symptoms, while providing helpful communication and engagement tips and community resources.
This program is free and open to the public. Register for the one session you wish to attend by clicking the registration button under the date.
