Dementia Friendly Communities

Program Description

A Dementia Friendly Community (DFC) is a community that helps people living with dementia feel included and supported in the places they work, live, and play. DFCs consist of people who recognize that 1) a person living with dementia is more than his/her diagnosis and are still capable of connection and relationships with others; 2) dementia can affect a person’s cognition, behavior, emotions and physical capabilities; and, 3) everyone has a role to play in recognizing persons living with dementia as a part of their community and supporting their independence, value and inclusion.
