North Chicago's Adam Chiappetta, firefighter paramedic and Mike Scholle, fire marshal, sort Skittles and playing cards on a table using thick gloves and dark glasses to understand what people experience when they have dementia during Dementia Friendly Community Training at the City of North Chicago Fire Station #2 on Buckley Road in North Chicago. The gloves simulate neuropathy and loss of dexterity, and the glasses show what people see if they have macular degeneration.(11/28/17)
