Dementia Friendly Business Purple Ribbon Cutting Event

Chippewa Health Improvement Partnership, Chippewa Falls Main Street and a newly formed Chippewa County dementia coalition is launching a new initiative to help Chippewa Falls businesses become dementia friendly.

To celebrate, several businesses and community members will gather at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 15, for a purple ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 AM Coffee House, 608 N. Bridge St.

A Dementia Friendly Community is one that shows a high level of public awareness and understanding of dementia. Chippewa Falls businesses and their employees are showing support by getting trained to help serve those who may have a form of dementia.

Janet Rubenzer-Pike, Partners of St. Joseph's Hospital member and mother of a daughter who has a form of Alzheimer's, brought the concept to members of Chippewa Health Improvement Partnership and St. Joseph's Hospital. Rubenzer-Pike was looking for funding and support to produce educational pieces for families.

As the pieces fell into place for community education, Teri Ouimette, executive director of Chippewa Falls Main Street, wanted to educate businesses to assist customers who exhibit signs of dementia. A small action team was born and has started to distribute materials to businesses, and is installing window clings in businesses that are dementia friendly.

Rubenzer-Pike could not be more thrilled that this collaborative project is moving forward.

"I have seen Chippewa Falls businesses assist my daughter with respect and compassion," Rubenzer-Pike said. "I would like to have that same concern offered to others who suffer from dementia."
