No one walking the dementia journey has to walk alone.

The Lincoln Center leads the way in becoming dementia-friendly

History was made this week in Northern Colorado!  The Fort Collins Lincoln Center staff and management participated in an educational session to help them become more dementia-aware and responsive to their patrons who are living with dementia.  Since one of every three seniors lives with dementia, the Lincoln Center team wisely realized the need to be well-trained and ready to serve their patrons who are living with dementia or bringing a loved one with dementia to one of the many Lincoln Center events.  The Lincoln Center staff is committed to demonstrating compassion and respect to all of its patrons, including those who need a little extra encouragement and support to stay engaged in the community through the Arts.  Congratulations to the Fort Collins Lincoln Center for leading the way in building Dementia-Friendly Communities in Northern Colorado.The Lincoln Center is Dementia-Friendly!
