Episode 13 - Dementia Friendly Communities: A Conversation with Author Susan McFadden
Jul 13th, 2021 by Ruth Frost Parker Center
In this episode, we will meet Susan McFadden, author of Dementia Friendly Communities: Why We Need Them and How We Can Create Them. Susan shares her years of research in how communities in England and the U.S. have made life more manageable for persons with dementia, and their caregivers. She shares many stories about strategies that work, how better to cope with this diagnosis, and how her community in Fox Valley, Wisconsin has adapted to better serve the needs of persons with dementia. We also talked with her husband John, about how they have pioneered a concept they call, Memory Camp.
