Outer Banks Dementia Friendly Coalition is a resource to caregivers. Supported by the Dare County of Public Health, the group provides money for respite care. Respite care is in-home care for loved ones experiencing dementia. “We hope to reach as many caregivers as we can to assist them with everyday activities,” stated organizers.
The Outer Banks has the first dementia friendly Hospital in North Carolina and has implemented an in-hospital volunteer sitter program to safeguard patients with memory issues.
