What is a dementia-friendly community?

It's a place where:

  • Understanding and empathy replace stigma and fear.

  • People with dementia feel safe, respected, and included.

  • Businesses and organizations are equipped to provide accessible and welcoming environments.

  • Neighbors offer support and assistance with everyday tasks.


Why is becoming a dementia-friendly community so important?

  • The number of people living with dementia is rising. By 2050, it's estimated that 14 million Americans will have dementia.

  • Most people with dementia want to stay in their homes and communities. Building dementia-friendly communities allows them to do so with dignity and independence.

  • Dementia-friendly communities benefit everyone. They create more inclusive and supportive environments for all residents, regardless of age or cognitive ability.
