Dementia Friends USA

Join the Movement!
Become a Dementia Friend.

  A Dementia Friend learns about dementia and then turns that understanding into action. We all have a part to play in creating dementia friendly communities!

   Dementia Friends USA is part of a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Anyone can be a Dementia Friend – we all have a part to play in creating dementia friendly communities!

  A Dementia Friend is someone who, through viewing a series of online videos or attending a live interactive session, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts.

Line Dancing for Beginning Seniors

Call 815-288-9236 for more info

For some time now, Seniors have been asking for a Beginners' Line Dancing Group here at Lee County Council On Aging.  Some of us just don't remember things as well as we used to.  And some of us just can't spin and turn like we used to... And some of us may need a walker at times...

   We are hoping to start up a Beginners' Line Dancing group here at LCCOA this coming July !!

If you know of anyone that might enjoy leaning new things, or anyone who wants to increase the range of motion in their joints, please tell them about this Beginners' Group !!
