A campaign to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding around dementia is underway in Macon County with the support of area churches, the Southwestern Commission Area Agency on Aging, Macon County Public Library, Angel Medical Center, Macon County Senior Services and Macon County DSS.
Hickory Knoll United Methodist Church has partnered with a growing list of area churches throughout Macon County to host a workshop series called “Dementia Friends North Carolina.” Designed to help build awareness about dementia and identify ways local citizens can help people who are living with it in our community, the four-session workshop series is being made possible through a Missional Engagement Team Grant of the Smoky Mountain District of The United Methodist Church.
The 90-minute sessions will take place on four consecutive Tuesdays, beginning March 20.
Dementia Friends North Carolina is provided by the NC Association of Area Agencies on Aging (NC4A). For more details contact Rev. Stephanie Thompson, Pastor, Hickory Knoll United Methodist Church at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindy Miles at email@example.com.
