Door County Medical Center is reaching out to the area’s older population with its Northern Door Aging Network. Started last year thanks to a grant from the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, the Northern Door Aging Network is reaching out to residents suffering from age and dementia-related issues. Geriatric Outreach Specialist Kristy Wisniewski says the peninsula’s geography leaves many seniors without reliable help.
The Northern Door Aging Network received another grant to expand its Dementia Capable Door County project, which is a group of community members and service providers discussing ways to enable and empower people living with dementia and other age-related issues.
