Eldercare Locator and n4a Launch Home for the Holidays Campaign on Dementia

As the nation's aging population grows, so will the number of older adults living with dementia in the community. The Eldercare Locator and n4a are excited to announce the launch of the 2017 Home for the Holidays campaign with the publication of Living Well With Dementia in the Community: Resources and Support, a consumer brochure targeted to individuals living with dementia and their caregivers.

Developed in partnership with the Alzheimer's Association and Dementia Friendly America, the brochure highlights the many home and community-based services, aging programs and other local resources, available to support individuals with dementia, as well as information on how to identify signs of dementia and tips for ways to communicate with people living with dementia.

To help your agency promote your local community resources for people with dementia and their caregivers, we've developed a toolkit that includes a press release template, newsletter article template, PowerPoint slide deck, infographics and sample social media posts for you to customize and use in your communities. 

Also, as a part of this year's campaign, we're also asking you to encourage people to become a Dementia Friend and pledge to support people living with dementia in your community.

Spread the word about your agency's innovative dementia programs and visit our campaign page to learn more. Order your copies of Living Well with Dementia in the Community today!
