Creating safer communities for people living with dementia requires collaboration between law enforcement, local governments and health and human service organizations. In this session, Jessica Empeño of Alzheimer’s San Diego will share lessons learned through one such partnership, and offer attendees interested in working with local law enforcement departments and first responder units practical strategies for outreach, training and collaboration. Molly Schroeder from the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute will discuss how the development of the Emergency Medical Services Visitor Program in Wisconsin is bridging gaps and connecting the elderly population to community based resources, with the goal of helping people with dementia who live alone remain safely in their homes as long as possible.

Part of the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center webinar series sponsored by the Administration for Community Living.
