The WellMed Charitable Foundation received ACL funding to enhance dementia capability in the San Antonio community. Morgan's Wonderland, the world's first fully accessible theme park, is serving as a mini-dementia village for persons living with dementia and their caregivers—including those living alone with dementia and persons with intellectual disabilities who are at risk of acquiring dementia as they age. Learn about the core components of this project—the incorporation of both fun and education for all participants in a safe, accessible environment, as well as an evidence-based behavior management program for caregivers..

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Learn about structuring programs to address the separate needs of persons living with dementia and their family caregivers.
  • Discuss ways to establish dementia friendly spaces and programs in their own communities.
  • Explore the core components of fun and education for dementia programs and initiatives for caregivers.
