Topsfield Fair in Massachusetts Works to Become Dementia Friendly

The Topsfield Fair, America's oldest agricultural fair since it started in 1818, has hit many milestones over the years. Its newest milestone is working to become dementia-friendly, in partnership with Dementia Friendly Topsfield. Staff and volunteers who worked at this year’s Topsfield Fair received education on dementia, including its signs and symptoms, to help them better support the people living with dementia and caregivers who attended the fair. Topsfield Fair also created a special map to highlight the dementia-friendly food vendors while also providing visitors with tips on being dementia friendly. The Topsfield Fair plans to unveil a multi-year plan to continue to become more dementia friendly.
