As a member of the Alzheimer’s Association 2019-2020 National Early-Stage Advisory Group, Keith wants to raise awareness and education to help families move forward following a diagnosis. He also hopes by sharing his experiences he can help doctors understand the importance of disclosing a diagnosis and directing families to available resources.
There is a movement that started in the United Kingdom and has spread to the US. “Dementia Friendly” is the term they are using. Our population is aging and statistics show that the upward trend will continue. Thus we have to prepare ourselves to be ready to handle the aging population who will hopefully come to live, dine and shop in our city.
Dementia Friendly America is a nonprofit that is helping governments and businesses do this very thing.
