Local communities are beginning to grapple with the challenge of caring for their residents living with dementia. Yellow Springs is one such community, and it recently received “dementia-friendly” designation from Dementia Friendly America, a national coalition of leading organizations that encourage and support such communities. Sandy Markwood, Co-chairperson of Dementia Friendly America and CEO of the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, will visit the Dayton area to discuss this issue, among others, at a forum on March 15, at Sinclair College. In this WYSO Weekend excerpt, we spoke to Sandy by phone ahead of her visit.
