Creating a Community
To create a sustainable Dementia Capable Waukesha County we need to engage communities in the support of persons with dementia and their loved ones.
“A flourishing community seeks to honor, value, and include all of its members in a common life. It actively seeks creative improvements in a shared life because it understands that meeting the needs of the most vulnerable and dependent members cannot be separated from its own.”
