Jane Burns from Reading Elder Services was our Speaker this week.  She spoke about Reading becoming Dementia Friendly.  The initiative has been spearheaded by the Council on Aging and the DKJ Foundation.  To date, a leadership team has been installed.  Jane spoke about How the initiative began in the UK and then to Minnesota.  Massachusetts has been making strides in this effort since 2015 to the point that Governor Baker has encouraged every municipality in the Commonwealth to become either Dementia or Age friendly.
