Dementia Community Forum Comes To Sinclair College

Mar 11, 2018


Local communities are beginning to grapple with the challenge of caring for their residents living with dementia. Yellow Springs is one such community, and it recently received “dementia-friendly” designation from Dementia Friendly America, a national coalition of leading organizations that encourage and support such communities. Sandy Markwood, Co-chairperson of Dementia Friendly America and CEO of the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, will visit the Dayton area to discuss this issue, among others, at a forum on March 15, at Sinclair College. In this WYSO Weekend excerpt, we spoke to Sandy by phone ahead of her visit.
