Description: RSVP is hosting a ‘Dementia Friends’ Information Session on March 26, 2020 and is looking for local community members, RSVP volunteers, those living with dementia, along with their caregivers to join in learning about dementia and helping people who are living with dementia in our community. The session will take place at the Pahrump Community Library, 701 East St., Pahrump, 2:30– 4:00 pm.
Dementia Friends is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way we think, talk and act about the disease. The Dementia Friends session helps you learn about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the program to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
RSVP is a valued partner in the Dementia Friendly Nevada Initiative. RSVP’s Independent Living Programs such as transportation and respite care, are an essential service connection that aligns with this Initiative – which aims to develop and promote communities that are informed, safe, respectful and inclusive of persons living with dementia and their care partners.
Anyone interested in attending the FREE ‘Dementia Friends’ Session should contact Tonya Brum, RSVP Nye County Field Representative, at (702) 845-4748 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP as space is limited.
