Last Saturday, 20 couples who are engaged in the B Sharp Arts Engagement program attended their 3rd Masterworks Symphony performance at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center. These couples are participating in the collaborative community program, studying how music affects not just the people with dementia, but also how attending the symphony impacts their care partners as well. (See multiple media stories about the B Sharp program linked to this website.)
Today, The Poudre River Public Library District demonstrated how it strives to be a "continuously learning organization," and a "dynamic, responsive, and integral" presence in our community. The staff at the Old Town Library participated in dementia-awareness education, becoming the first dementia-friendly library in Northern Colorado! Harmony Library and Council Tree Library are next! :) We are so fortunate here in Northern Colorado to have people in businesses and organizations committed to working together for the greater good of us all.
