July – Volunteers Impacting the Community
Pictured holding a banner with a group of nursing students is our own John Scharer (far right) and Don Kirschner (far left) who have been volunteering their time for several years to educate communities and organizations on how to become dementia friendly.
On June 21, the UW-Madison School of Nursing launched their “Dementia Friendly Toolkit” which includes training materials to help healthcare staff, service providers, family members and others better communicate with and advocate for people living with dementia.
We thank John and Don for their dedication and contributing their talents and knowledge to improving our larger Dane County community.
