Leaders in Dementia Care facilities--The Alzheimer's Association grants this designation to facilities/organizations whose staff complete a minimum of eight hours of dementia training each year.  We encourage you to investigate every organization and facility on your own prior to entrusting yourself or your loved one to their care.  

By listing these facilities here, it does not imply endorsement by Dementia-Friendly Communities NoCo.    

Our goal is to encourage raising the standard of dementia care in senior care facilities and agencies throughout Northern Colorado.  To that end, we, in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association, are providing staff from these organizations quarterly 2-hour educational sessions (total 8 hours/year) at no charge to the organizations or individuals so that organizations in Northern Colorado can more readily earn "Leaders in Dementia Care" and " Dementia-Friendly" designations.   Call Katie 970-472-9798 for more details.
