Dementia Friends is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia: it aims to transform the way we think, talk and act about the disease. This talk by Liz Schulze at 2:00 pm on May 26 will help you learn about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the program to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
Liz Schulze is the program coordinator for the Long-Term Care Ombudsman program based out of the Athens Community Council on Aging. Ms Schulze and representatives advocate for the rights of long-term care residents by monitoring conditions and working to resolve resident complaints in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and personal care homes.
Ms. Schulze has degrees in Organismal Biology and Gerontology. She has prior experience as a caregiver for older adults in their home and long-term care facilities as well as Medicaid case management. She lives in Athens with her husband and two young children.
