What a great opportunity I had to attend the "Aging Well Summit" sponsored by the Chuckanut Health Foundation!

The elderly and other vulnerable adults are often exploited and victimized by abuse, fraud and scams. Our deputies are also increasingly find situations where those suffering from dementia are accused of crime.

We operate “Operation Life-Saver” where our Search and Rescue Deputies use technology to locate lost Alzheimer patients. There are so many needs and so many different groups and people working on the same goals.

The Summit began the start of relationships and the development of a blueprint that I believe will work in a much improved coordination and awareness of services and resources.
