Door County receiving resources for Alzheimer's

For the first time ever, Door County will now have the funding to hire a dementia care specialist. The state of Wisconsin will provide the funding to the county, and the county will then hire the appropriate staff. Some of the things the dementia care specialist will be able to do for patients suffering from the disease include performing cognitive screens to see if patients need to be referred for further help, providing support for family caregivers, and making sure patients are still getting regular exercise as well as making sure patients receive social interaction with family members or friends.
