Congratulations to Dr. MacPhee’s office in Smiths Falls on becoming a dementia friendly business by completing our Blue Umbrella training.
The program provides businesses and organizations with an opportunity to receive education about dementia, and learn strategies to provide good customer service to people living with dementia. Businesses that receive training and adopt strategies will be designated as a dementia friendly location. These businesses will display a blue umbrella decal in their window.
The intent of the program is to create a community that is dedicated to the safety and engagement of all its members, in which people living with dementia and their caregivers can easily identify businesses that have been trained to provide good and respectful customer service to people with dementia.
If you would like to become a dementia friendly business call our office at 866-576-8556.
