6. ADRC report

  • Sandy Tryon reported that a current hot topic, even at the state level, is the dementia-friendly community. Eighteen of Wisconsin’s 72 counties have a dementia care specialist; Fond du Lac County has Music & Memory. In Fond du Lac County, 2,200 people have been diagnosed with dementia, 80 percent of whom live in the community, which is why the ADRC is interested in working with area businesses on making the community dementia friendly.
  • Ms. Tryon cited an example of Music & Memory delaying a consumer’s entry into a nursing home. She said right now there is no funding for the program coordinator for next year. The Lions Club has taken on a project of making 50 busy boards for the program, and a Leadership Fond du Lac group is holding an iPod drive.
  • Ms. Tryon discussed the state’s recommendation to integrate the Aging and ADRC offices, which she feels would be a positive move.
  • There are several educational opportunities on the horizon, including a Finding Your Way Home class. This class will run April 19-June 21, and Ms. Tryon will be speaking at the May 19 session. There are two Healthy Living with Diabetes workshops scheduled at Agnesian Health Shoppe. Stepping On classes are coming up. A guardianship training will be held at the courthouse in May. The ADRC will be at the Campbellsport Public Library’s Seniors’ Opportunity Fair on April 20.
  • Board membership was discussed, and Ms. Tryon said she is in contact with County Executive Allen Buechel regarding appointments.

Motion (Tiry/Brink) to accept the ADRC report. Motion carried.

 

7. Future agenda items

Members explored future agenda item possibilities, while keeping in mind the fact that there may be new appointments to the board. Ms. Tryon will get copies of the Department of Social Services annual report for all members to give them an overview of the department.

 

8. Meeting dates for 2017 at 4 p.m.

Meetings will be held on May 22, July 24, Sept. 25 and Nov. 27.
