Dementia Friendly Communities

What is a Dementia Friendly Community?  

A Dementia Friendly Community can be described as:

A city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported, and confident they can contribute to community life.  In a dementia friendly community people will be aware of and understand dementia, and people with dementia will feel included and involved, and have choice and control over their day-to-day lives.

(Alzheimer’s Society 2013)
