Yellow Springs Senior Center

A recent RAND Corporation study found more than 14 percent of Americans age 71 or older had dementia in 2010. Now, some communities across the country are working to make life easier for people with the disease. Among them is the Village of Yellow Springs.

 

The movement to create so-called “dementia-friendly” communities began in 2015. Within a year cities in more than 20 states had adopted the dementia-friendly status.

 

 

Welcome to your weekly radio magazine, WYSO Weekend - On today’s program, WYSO Curious and information on this year’s Concours deElegance at Carillon Historical Park. See full details below.

 

 

There is an effort underway in the village of Yellow Springs to make it a dementia-friendly community. The Yellow Springs Senior Center, the Greene County Council on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Association and other groups are working together on the project and to tell us what it means to be a dementia-friendly community, is Toni Dosik. She is the project director for Dementia Friendly Yellow Springs.

A dispute over whether to shut down Toledo's last abortion clinic is headed to the Ohio Supreme Court in a case both sides view as pivotal.

At issue in Tuesday's oral arguments is the Ohio Department of Health's 2014 order shutting down Capital Care of Toledo for lack of a patient-transfer agreement with a local hospital.

Such agreements were mandated, and public hospitals barred from providing them, under restrictions Ohio lawmakers passed in 2013. The change prompted the public University of Toledo Hospital to withdraw from its transfer arrangement with Capital Care.

Tana French returned to the program to talk about her latest Dublin Murder Squad novel "The Trespasser."  Last year Tana did an interview for the hardcover release of this book and I could not resist the opportunity to talk to her again because I loved this story and she doesn't put out new books very often.

Accidental drug overdose deaths have decreased in Montgomery County over the past few months, according to a new report from the Community Overdose Action Team task force. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean fewer people are grappling with drug addiction, officials say.

The number of Montgomery County overdose deaths fell by more than half between May and August of this year, from 80 to 38 per month.
