Communities across the nation are taking action and becoming Dementia Friendly. A Dementia Friendly community is informed, safe and respectful of individuals with dementia and their families and provides supportive options across the community to foster quality of life. DFA communities are working across sectors to ensure they are friendly places for people with dementia and their caregivers to live. Every part of the community has a unique role in a Dementia Friendly community. Learn how your community can take steps towards becoming Dementia Friendly!
