The Dementia Friendly movement strives to educate and engage all members of the community to support persons living with dementia and their care partners to comfortably participate in desired activities.
Being an Age-Friendly Health System means providing safe, high-quality care to all older adults using an evidence-based framework, known as the “4Ms”: What Matters, Medication, Mentation (Mind), and Mobility.
This no-cost, collaborative online training series introduces the Age Friendly care framework for guiding staff support and well-being that are essential to residents’ quality of care, and staff quality of work life.
