Alzheimer’s is a disease that can cause problems with memory, thinking and behavior. This educational course will help businesses understand why it can be difficult for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers to go into the community. It will provide insight into the disease and offer tips to help a business handle some common issues that may arise from customers with Alzheimer’s disease. It will also distinguish your business as a "Alzheimer’s Friendly Business" where CAREGivers will feel safe bringing their clients or loved ones.
As part of your Alzheimer’s Friendly Business designation, your business will receive the following:
• Window Cling – Watch your mail for a window cling, which can be displayed proudly to show the public you welcome customers with a dementia illness like Alzheimer’s disease.
• Poster – Also included in the package will be a poster with tips that you can display in your break room to remind your employees of some suggestions for interacting with individuals who may have Alzheimer’s disease.
• Website Resources – Remember, you can always go to AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com for additional resources and tips.
