November marks the five-year anniversary of the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital being recognized as the first VA in the country to achieve “Dementia Friendly Hospital” status. November is also National Caregiver Month.

To celebrate both, we invite Veterans, families, and staff to learn more about caregiver support, dementia care and aging services, and much more Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon in the main lobby of the Madison VA.

From 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. in the auditorium, we will host a presentation and roundtable discussion with three distinguished guest speakers:

Additionally, VA staff will be available to answer questions. Be sure to wear purple to show your support of Alzheimer’s awareness!
