What does creating a dementia-friendly community involve?
• Rising awareness about Alzheimer’s, transforming attitudes, and moving people to action.
• Supporting family and friend caregivers by providing accessible information, resources, and in-person support.
• Promoting meaningful participation in community life for everyone.
• Including communities that experience inequities because of race, ethnicity, culture, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental illness, hearing/sensory differences, intellectual or physical abilities, and economic status.
