Senior Center launches new dementia program
I hope you are having a good day and enjoying the nice weather. I am thrilled to share that we will be participating in a program called Miles for Memories. This program helps the person in the early stages of dementia to continue to be active. I went to the trainers meeting on Wednesday to learn how the bands/bracelets work and how they will help our community. The bracelet is specially designed to be comfortable and waterproof. It allows emergency and medical information to be stored and accessed by emergency personnel when your loved one is found. The information provided by the bracelet can be viewed and adjusted by family members or caregivers, via a phone application or online. Even better, you decide how much information to provide. There are a few other devices available to keep our wandering seniors safe. If you want more information call me or stop by. I will work with the community on how this program will be a great way to keep people safe.
