Virtual Dementia Friends Information Session Now Available

LifeStream Services has partnered with The Leland Legacy to host virtual Dementia Friends Information Sessions on the second Tuesday of the month starting May 12 from 1pm to 2pm via video conference. In-person Dementia Friends Information Sessions have been canceled until further notice due to the threat of COVID-19. This virtual opportunity will allow communities to continue their efforts in becoming dementia friendly places to live.

A Dementia Friend is someone who wants to make a positive difference in the lives of people living with dementia through increased awareness and support. The Dementia Friends Information Session will equip attendees with the knowledge to help make their communities a safer and more welcoming place for those living with dementia and their caregivers.

Those who wish to attend a virtual session should visit bit.ly/dementiafriendsinfosession and enter the meeting ID, 990 9936 8606, on your desktop or mobile device, or call-in at 646-876-9923. Links and additional information can be found at lifestreaminc.org/dementiafriends.

The sessions will be led by Amanda Corman, Admissions Director at The Leland Legacy in Richmond, Ind. Corman shared,

“This opportunity allows individuals to learn about Dementia from the comfort of their own home and us to reach our community in all types of ways. During the info sessions, you have the opportunity to participate in the conversation and just listen in to learn. I look forward to meeting and sharing this initiative with you!”
