Floral City UMC becomes 'dementia-friendly' church

Hats off to Floral City UMC for earning a dementia-friendly certification by attending a workshop on how to recognize individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, as well as how to work with those individuals to reduce fear and anxiety.

More than 30 church staff and congregation members attended the July 29 workshop, and Floral City UMC is believed to be the first church in Citrus County to earn the certification. Debbie Selsavage, president of Coping with Dementia LLC, conducted the workshop.

Donate here to the Florida Conference Hurricane Michael Fund to help churches and the neighborhoods that surround them. Through December 31, 2018, donations will be matched up to $500,000. Volunteer to bring yourself or a team to help with the recovery.
