We value the strong connections we have within South Boston and our neighboring communities, including all of the neighborhoods of Boston and Quincy, as well as the cities and towns of the South Shore.
At Compass on The Bay, we believe that with our expertise comes a responsibility to educate families, professionals and the general public on all things related to cognitive impairment, and to actively fight the stigma of dementia through our Dementia Friendly Communities initiative. We are currently working with the following groups and organizations to help build Dementia-Friendly Communities:
We’ve been working with the City of Boston’s Alzheimer’s Initiative to bring the Dementia Experience to city employees, and have provided trainings and training materials to leadership groups including the city’s Long Term Care Task Force and Senior Companions caregivers program.
We also have an active program with the Boston University School of Medicine’s geriatric department. All of their fourth-year medical students have the ongoing opportunity to go through our Dementia Experience and Communications training program and also spend a day in our Compass Memory Support Neighborhood for educational observation where they get to visit with our residents, join them for a meal and experience many of our evidence-based daily programs.
