A dementia-friendly town
Businesses in Watertown, Wis., are working to make life easier for a vulnerable portion of their population: those with dementia.
Unfortunately, a diagnosis of dementia often results in shame and stigma. It should not. Those diagnosed early in the progress of the disease can live productive and happy lives for years with just a little help.
For the community to help, they need to know how. Watertown is training those in retail to better serve those with dementia.
