On February 12, 2020 we celebrated Dane County's 5th Annual Dementia Friendly Breakfast recognizing the awesome contributions throughout Dane County in our efforts to make becoming a dementia friendly community community a reality. Dane County first started to champion the dementia friendly initiative in 2013 in Middleton. Since then, our area has worked hard to become a dementia friendly community. Whether it be through trainings and special events or memory care kits and meetings, we have dedicated ourselves to raising awareness about dementia and creating a network of resources to better our community.

Kathy Evers, Wisconsin's first lady was our guest of honor.
