Did you know the Village of Suamico is Purple Angel Trained?
What is Purple Angel?
The Purple Angel Initiative trains businesses and organizations in our community to recognize, communicate with, and create a welcoming and safe environment for people with dementia and their caregivers. This helps businesses become "Dementia Friendly," letting the community know that their place of business is accessible and safe for people with dementia.
How does a business or organization become Purple Angel Trained?
Purple Angel is a FREE, 30-minute training going over basics of dementia, strategies on how to approach and interact with someone with dementia, and includes business specific information based on the type of service that is provided. In order to be considered "Purple Angel Trained," a business or organization must have all management and at least 50% of employees who have gone through the training, with the hopes of it reaching everyone.
