This year Wildwood Programs was invited, along with the Center for Disability Services, to partner with Eddy Alzheimer’s Services by their Education Specialist, Jennifer Harvey, MSW, CDP.  This opportunity to have a working collaboration in a 3 year grant funded program is exciting. The goal of the program is to teach and empower Wildwood staff to increase their knowledge of Alzheimer’s Dementia, increase their ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of dementia in people with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities and to develop and deliver a person-centered approach to both maintain each person’s independence and to cope with their changing abilities.
