Firefighters train in dementia awareness
Tempe Fire Medical Rescue is committed to the City’s Dementia Friendly Tempe initiative to make Tempe a livable place for people with dementia and the people who care for them. As first responders answering medical calls for patients who may have dementia or are experiencing memory loss, recent dementia awareness training helped us learn more about identifying those patients and how better to communicate with them.
