Center for Aging & Community promotes Indiana Alzheimer’s Virtual Advocacy Week

While not every older adult will experience Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, the existence of dementia is a reality in the world today. Even those who don’t work in healthcare may find themselves affected by people with dementia — a bank teller or grocery store clerk working with a customer, a realtor working with a client, maybe even just a neighbor living next to someone with dementia or the many caregivers who are caring for someone with dementia.

For that reason, the University of Indianapolis Center for Aging & Community encourages the UIndy community to get involved with the Indiana Alzheimer’s Virtual Advocacy Week.
Here are the planned events:

Opening Ceremony: Monday, Feb. 1st 6 p.m. ET

Hear from guest speakers and our Indiana Advocacy Team for our Call to Action

Virtual Day of Action: Wednesday, Feb. 3rd (All Day)
You’ll receive alerts with requests to email, post on social media, or call your state legislator about our legislation

Thank You Celebration: Friday, Feb. 5th 12 p.m. ET
We’ll end the week by celebrating our accomplishments, hearing stories from advocates, and looking towards the future
