Greendale's Dementia-Friendly workgroup has partnered with a student from the Medical College of Wisconsin to improve the dementia friendliness of our community. To do this, we need you! Please complete this short survey so we can learn more about what our community needs.
Thank you for making Greendale dementia-friendly!

AARP Friendly Voice
AARP launched “AARP Friendly Voice” as sometimes just hearing a friendly voice on the other end of the line can help in challenging times. AARP Friendly Voices are trained AARP volunteers who will provide a call to say “Hello”. You can click HERE to fill out an online form or call 1-888-281-0145 to request an AARP Friendly Voice phone call. You can also fill this online form on behalf of someone you think would enjoy a call!
This is open to ALL ages and no cost. Feel free to also share this with your network,
friends and family.
SAGE Workgroup Mission: “Explore and support innovative ideas to promote healthy and productive lives for the residents of Greendale, especially older adults and those most vulnerable by fostering a strong sense of community and the assurance of inclusiveness.”

The Greendale Health Department provides leadership for this multi-year initiative.

Village of Greendale!
AARP awarded the Village of Greendale a highly competitive $7,500 grant! The funding was used to purchase and install benches and directional signage on some of the walking paths. Additionally, an updated walking path map was created and printed. The Greendale Health Department, Department of Public Works, Greendale School District and Girl Scout Troop 8035, led by Aleks Skibicki worked together to accomplish these goals. Older adult focus groups held in 2018 pinpointed the need for the additional benches, directional signage and a new walking path map.
A livable community is one that is safe and secure, has
affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and offers
supportive community features and services
