Understanding Dementia for First Responders

Learn how to adapt your approach for the best outcomes.

At The Arbor Company, we have a rich background of working with seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. We know that it takes thought and training to properly approach someone with dementia, and that's on a good day. But when you insert some sort of crisis into the mix, it is easy for things to either get out of hand or misinterpreted.

That's why we developed this First Responders program. We hope that it will help prepare first responders in our community to better serve those with memory loss.


We're here to help. If you are a first responder in a jurisdiction near one of our senior living communities, we may be able to provide free training for your department. We also offer a handy pocket guide for taking a positive approach to Alzheimer's and dementia.
