Fall 2019 Brookline MRC

Trainings and Events

**SEPTEMBER IS EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS MONTH!!**

“Preparedness improves public health and safety, can help minimize property damage and the economic impacts of disasters, and can accelerate the disaster recovery process.”- Governor Charlie Baker

 

All emergency volunteers and their families need to be prepared

before they can go help others.

 

Don’t forget to check your emergency kits/go bags:

Replace medicines, batteries, and food as needed. What might you need to add?

 

This is also a good time to review your communication plans:

Have any of your contacts or phone numbers changed?

Does everyone have a hard copy of the plan, in case phone batteries die?

Dementia Friendly Experience

Thursday, October 10th from 6pm to 7:00pm

Brookline Department of Public Health, Denny Room

11 Pierce Street, Brookline

Persons living with dementia usually experience a progressive decline in their ability to accomplish even basic activities of daily living such as dressing, grooming, hygiene, etc.
They have difficulty distinguishing between items of clothing and accessories. Objects that were once familiar may appear as something unknown or as entirely different. As the disease
progresses beyond the early stages, choosing and putting on clothes can be frustrating. The person may not use good judgment in dressing and may be overwhelmed by the task
itself. 

Come experience what it feels like to live with dementia and how by being aware of these conditions you can encourage independence, dignity, and minimize anxiety.

This training is limited to 24 people.  We will maintain a wait list and if there is a high enough demand we will schedule a second date.

 

Nursing and EMT CEUs will be applied for, and certificates of attendance given to all attendees.
