Tuesday Speaker
Natraj Shanker and Sue Kelley on Dementia-Friendly Communities
February 15, 2022 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

This program outlines ways in which communities can support people living with dementia and their caregivers, with a spotlight on how the communities of Shorewood and Greendale are working toward becoming Dementia-Friendly Communities in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Rotary Action Group (ADRAG).  This local collaboration between two Dementia-Friendly communities and ADRAG is a pilot program in pursuit of an organizational partnership between Dementia-Friendly America and Rotary International.

Natraj Shanker is a Shorewood resident, Rotarian and a board member of ADRAG.  As part of ADRAG he helped form ADRAG-India and initiated the partnership with Dementia-Friendly America.

Sue Kelley is a Shorewood resident and serves as the volunteer Chairperson of the Shorewood Connects Dementia Awareness Work Group. Throughout her career as a planning consultant, Sue has worked to develop programs for underserved older adults to ensure that they have the opportunity to remain connected to and involved in their communities.
