Michelle Brown is the latest dementia care specialist who joins the Trempealeau County Resource Center for Aging and Disability and will also serve the counties of Buffalo and Pepin.

Brown will accomplish the three main goals of a specialist in dementia care, who is increasing support for people with dementia and their family and unpaid healthcare professionals; increase the dementia capacity of Wisconsin’s aging and disability resource centers and tribes, as well as other provincial and municipal offices; and create communities that are friendly to dementia.

Brown will also support and assist people with dementia, as well as their caregivers, by deciding on the appropriate services that will work effectively for people with dementia.

Over 20% of the populations of the Trempealeau, Buffalo and Pepin counties include people aged 65 and over, which amounts to nearly 10,000 people.

A total of 11% of people over the age of 65 have dementia, which means there are likely to be at least 1,100 people in these three counties with some form of dementia.

Given that 70% of these patients are likely to stay home and receive care from their family or other caregivers, it is important that community support is available for people with dementia and their caregivers.

For more information on the specialist dementia care program, contact Michelle Brown, MSW, APSW, at michelle.brown@co.trempealeau.wi.us or 715-538-3198.
