Join Dementia Friendly America for an Informational Webinar

More than five million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer's, the most common form of dementia. Nearly 60 percent of people with dementia live at home and one in seven individuals live alone. Join Dementia Friendly America for an informational webinar to learn how you can help make your community more attuned to the needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers.

Co-chaired and administered by n4a with the support of more than 40 national organizations, Dementia Friendly America (DFA) (www.dfamerica.org) supports communities across the country that are working to adopt dementia-friendly practices.
 
Participate in the webinar to learn how your community can join the movement that more than 200 communities across 43 states have embarked upon! Attend the Dementia Friendly America Webinar on November 1 at 2:00 pm ET. Participants will learn about the Dementia Friendly America initiative and hear from two communities that are successfully implementing dementia-friendly initiatives. A special focus will be placed on ways your community can take simple steps, with the support of Dementia Friendly America's website and technical assistance resources, to become dementia friendly.
 
Dementia Friendly America's vision is that each part of community—whether it is health care, business, banking, legal services, transportation, faith communities, libraries or local government (and more!)—can play a role in supporting people with dementia and caregivers. Register for the webinar to learn more about how you can spark an initiative in your community!
