A WALK IN THEIR SHOES: An Experiential Presentation Simulating Dementia And The Challenges It Presents

In order to increase understanding of dementia and its process and to come up with strategies to help effectively work with someone who has dementia, the Holliston Senior Center is teaming up with The Residence of Valley Farm to offer, “A Walk in their Shoes”. Participants will gain empathy and understanding of the anxiety, fear, loneliness and agitation sometimes experienced due to the physical challenges and sensory disorders common with dementia.

This experiential presentation will take place at the Holliston Senior Center, 150 Goulding on March 22 at 1:00 PM. Please call 508-429-0622 to reserve your spot.

There are an estimated 5.4 million people in the United States currently living with dementia. That number is expected to rise to 16 million by 2050. More than 120,000 of those people are living in Massachusetts thus creating a growing movement in Massachusetts to create “age and dementia friendly communities”. These communities are well informed, safe, respectful and interested in helping those living with dementia and those who care for them, to live full and engaged lives.

The Holliston Senior Center, celebrating 30 years this year, is committed to serving the needs of those citizens who are 55 years and older. Our programs revolve around many different interests, economic levels as well as physical capabilities. We provide a variety of outreach services, transportation, congregant meals, exercise and fitness programs and educational programs. We provide a warm and inviting environment that welcomes all. For more information, contact: Marty Schneier.
