Thursday, January 20, 2022
PROJECT NAME: Age and Dementia Friendly Community Project
INTRODUCTION: The Town of Amherst seeks to understand how our community can best serve older adults and people with dementia. Together, we will explore how we can work together to improve opportunities and outcomes for older adults and people with dementia by becoming an Age and Dementia Friendly Community.
The Town is working with staff from Pioneer Valley Planning Commission who are assisting with the project. Additionally, the Town is forming a working group to provide oversight of this work. The working group will assist with community engagement strategies and development of a community assessment and action plan. The working group will meet monthly throughout 2022.
KICK OFF WORKING GROUP MEETING: The Town will be holding its kick-off working group meeting on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm via Zoom. The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the project, project timeline, and to answer any general questions. All are welcome.
