Dementia Friendly in Tweed!
Have you seen the new Dementia Friendly Community Supporter decals in Tweed?
Tweed municipal employees, including library staff and fire fighters, as well as Council members participated in the Alzheimer Society’s Dementia Awareness training. The decal is in recognition that over 75 % of employees were trained as part of the initiative. The Municipality (@TweedOntario) joins CIBC Tweed and The Tweed News in displaying the decals.
When you see the decal, let our community partners know that you appreciate all they do to make Tweed and Hastings County safe and welcoming for all residents and visitors.
