New Community Joins DFA: New Oxford/Hanover, PA

Dementia Friendly America (DFA) newest member community—New Oxford/Hanover, PA— is off to a great start with an advisory committee comprised of representatives from various sectors that play a role in ensuring their community meets the needs of individuals living with dementia and their caregivers, including long-term care, in-home care, real estate, health care and legal services.

This advisory committee also benefits from the guidance and leadership of a person living with dementia and a caregiver. The committee is assessing current practices, gaps and opportunities in their community and has plans to launch a dementia-friendly business initiative.

Dementia Friendly America is connected with over two hundred communities actively implementing or planning dementia friendly efforts across 44 states. Will your community join the movement?
