2023 Dementia Friendly Glendale Awareness Day
Posted on 07/18/2023
Dementia Friendly Glendale Awareness DayJoin us for a free community resource fair to raise awareness about dementia and share ways to keep your brain healthy on Saturday, August 12, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium. 

We are committed to raising awareness about dementia, reducing stigmas and building a more dementia friendly community that supports people living with dementia, their caregivers, and their families.

Various local service organizations will provide resources, information, educational materials and door prizes! If you're wondering if the changes you've noticed in your memory or other thinking skills are due to normal aging or if something else might be going on, you can pre-register for a free Brain Health Check-in with our partners at Banner Sun Health Research Institute. Visit https://gplaz.org/dementia2023 for more information and to register. Registration is encouraged, but not required.
