Monona Area Dementia Friendly Community Seeks Businesses to Participate

Dementia affects many people in our community.

More than five million people have Alzheimer’s disease in our country and the numbers are expected to double in the next 30 years. The majority of these individuals live in the community. They are your customers, your members, your friends and neighbors.

Would you like to receive more information about how to educate yourself and your employees about how to:

  • Recognize the signs that a customer has memory and thinking impairment?
  • Communicate with the person with memory loss?
  • Assist your customers / members so they can continue to patronize your business or remain involved in your organization?
  • Provide good customer service to people with dementia and to their caregivers?

The Monona Area Dementia Friendly Community Coalition is an information and training resource for organizations and businesses in the community to help them provide better customer service for people who may have dementia.

Coalition members can help you encourage practices of hospitality and inclusion to those affected by dementia.
