The Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH is hosting “Understand, Approach & Respond: Effective Interventions for First Responders” intended for working with community members living with dementia. Communities working to become more age and dementia friendly are encouraged to promote this opportunity among public safety partners.
The goal of this training, taking place virtually on Jan. 23 from 6-8 pm, is to educate Fire and EMS personnel on the impact that Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias may have on individuals and communities. This program has been developed specifically for Fire and EMS. Strategies acquired from this training will provide an understanding of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, and will help personnel optimize the effectiveness of responding during interventions with persons living with dementia, and their families.
First responders interested in the Jan. 23rd training can register here.
