Police Participate in Virtual Dementia Tour

 

Annapolis, MD (August 25, 2015) - The Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities lead three of Anne Arundel County’s top police officers through a Virtual Dementia Tour recently, at the Heritage Complex on Riva Road, Annapolis.  Chief Timothy Altomare, and recently appointed Deputy Chief Jerard Flemings and Deputy Chief William Krampf were given rare insight into the lives of someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

 

The Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT) is a scientifically proven method of building a greater understanding of dementia through the use of patented sensory tools and instruction.  This is an up-close, hands-on experience that provides critical insight to those caring for dementia.  This tour is an eye-opening experience that proves how difficult the disease can be for the patients and caregivers alike. 

 

When asked what he learned from the VDT experience, Chief Altomare said, “This training illustrates the stark reality that more citizens in Anne Arundel County have some sort of this disease than we may realize.  I have learned just how frustrated and disconnected these members of our community feel when facing daily activities most of us take for granted.”

 

Deputy Chief Krampf stated, “The sensitivity to situations in the homes of older adults with dementia will be more prominent after taking this tour.  We’ve always been on the lookout as police officers, but now we know what signs to look for.”

 

In addition to collaborating on dementia, the Anne Arundel County Police Department and the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities also work with the Commission on Disability Issues.  Police cadets go through disability awareness training through interactive role playing to enhance the safety for individuals with disabilities.

25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

20th Anniversary of the Commission on Disability Issues

 

Annapolis, MD (July 29, 2015) – Yesterday, the Commission on Disability Issues recognized the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 20th Anniversary of the formation of the Commission on Disability Issues at The Independence Resource Center. 

 

“I am inspired by members of the Commission on Disability Issues who share their personal and professional experiences,” said County Executive Steve Schuh.  “They have dedicated themselves throughout the years to overcome barriers for individuals with disabilities.  I am overwhelmed by the opportunity to be a part of these important anniversaries.”

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law in 1990 by George H. W. Bush.  This Act has transformed the lives of people with disabilities in education, employment, transportation, telecommunications and community participation.  Approximately 49,000 individuals with disabilities live in Anne Arundel County. 

 

The Commission on Disability Issues was established in 1995 by Executive Order under former County Executive John Gary and re-promulgated by former County Executive Janet Owens.  The Commission was codified through a bill that was introduced by former Councilman C. Edward Middlebrooks and signed into law in 2006 by County Executive Owens.  The purpose of the Commission is to raise awareness, and to promote and enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by advising the County Executive and the County Council on the coordination and development of government policies, programs, services, and the allocation of resources. 

 

For more information, you may contact the ADA Coordinator’s office at 410-222-4383 or go to our website www.aacounty.org/Aging.  TTY users, please call via Maryland Relay 7-1-1.  All materials are available in an alternative format upon request.
