Today, the City of St. Albans Mayor Scott James, St. Albans City Council along with the St. Albans Dementia Friendly Group, and Cheryl Thomas proclaimed February 22 as Dementia Friendly Day in St. Albans with an official proclamation.
The proclamation was read during the scheduled City Council meeting that followed a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the unveiling of a new sign on US RT60, designating St. Albans as a Dementia Friendly City.
This proclamation is a way of showing the city’s dedication to becoming a dementia-friendly community. A dementia-friendly community is one that understands the needs of its residents with dementia and does everything it can to make it a place where they can continue to live as independently as possible.
This is an important designation for the city as its population continues to age. This proclamation marks the City of St. Albans’ commitment to making life easier for those affected and their families.
