Nation’s First Dementia-Friendly Parks and Rec Program Flourishes in SeattleSomething amazing happened this year....Seattle became the first city in the nation to launch dementia friendly programming through Parks and Recreation. Marigrace Becker, who advocated for and conceptualized the program, explained to The Seattle Channel, "Seattle itself is very progressive when it comes to thinking about dementia. I just figured...it must be everywhere throughout the nation...I'm hoping to inspire other Parks and Recreation departments." Based on the early success of dementia friendly recreation programming other cities are sure to be impressed.
