To be acknowledged by Dementia Friendly America, Canton Club 55+ staff completed special training, which provided information on ways to make the experience less difficult for persons living with dementia and their care partners, who utilize their services and facility. This staff training was provided by Dementia Friendly Saline.
In addition, Canton Club 55+ is now a 2023 SAGECare Platinum Credentialed provider for programming to LGBTQ+ older adults. To earn this credential, a minimum of 80 percent of Canton Club 55+ staff completed training that provided an overview of the needs, concerns, and unique history of LGBTQ+ older adults, as well as meaningful steps that staff can take to immediately improve the quality of support and services they provide.
Canton Club 55+ is one of 19 agencies in the state of Michigan to have achieved this distinction. "Through these training and credentialing opportunities, Canton Club 55+ staff has demonstrated their commitment to serving all older adults in the community by creating an inclusive and non-discriminatory environment," said Jenni Galazka, Canton senior adult specialist. "Our staff remains committed to fostering a supportive environment for all seniors." Canton Club 55+ is located in the Summit on the Park Parkview Room at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton. Monthly free Blood Pressure screenings are available, which have alerted many seniors to underlying health concerns. For more information, visit www.cantonfun.org/476 or call (734) 394-5485.
