Dementia Friendly Community

Making Our Community a Better Place with Purple Angel Training
The Purple Angel initiative, through the Brown County Dementia Friendly Community Coalition, trains businesses and organizations in our community to recognize, communicate with, and create a welcoming and safe environment for people living with dementia and their caregivers. This helps businesses become dementia friendly, letting the community know that they are accessible and safe for people with dementia.

Neighborhood Approach to Being Dementia Friendly!
Connecting with those around us can be helpful, especially when it’s our neighbors who we may often see! With the help of a United Way grant, residents and businesses in Navarino and Downtown neighborhoods in Green Bay can learn more about dementia and how to help support those living with a type of dementia through training programs, provided at no cost. The idea is that providing education to neighbors and businesses will help create a very caring atmosphere for people and their families suffering from dementia. We have many newly trained businesses and are always looking for more help! If you would like to get involved, please reach out to ADRC at (920) 448-4300 and ask about volunteering for Dementia Friends or Purple Angel programs!
