boston-fd-1

On February 21st, 2017 The Alzheimer’s Association and the Boston Alzheimer’s Initiative conducted a Alzheimer’s first responder training at Boston Fire Headquarters.  In response to Mayor Walsh’s commitment to provide “dementia capable” training for Boston’s First Responders a 3 hour training entitled “Understand, Approach and Respond: Effective Interventions with Individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia” was presented to trainers from the Boston Fire Department and the Boston Emergency Medical Service.  Starting this Spring, these trainers will begin training their departments so that each Boston First Responder will have the skills to bring the best possible outcomes to situations involving the care, evacuation and transport of Boston’s rapidly growing Alzheimer’s population.
