Recently, Dementia Friendly America hosted an hour-long webinar that featured the MA Age-Dementia Friendly Integration Tool Kit.
Pam MacLeod from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and Patty Sullivan from Dementia Friendly Mass. and the Mass. Councils on Aging presented the background and toolkit. Both the presentation and toolkit are great resources for cities, towns and regions looking to become both Age- and Dementia Friendly as they explain the benefits and opportunities.
This tool was featured at MCOA regional meetings and in MHAC presentations in 2019, but more communities are now thinking about the integration of these initiatives and may want a quick refresher on the tool kit.
