Dementia Friendly America: What You Need to Know to Get Your Community Involved
Date(s): July 11, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM EST - 3:00 PM EST
There are more than 5 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States. Learn about how your community can become a friendlier place for people living with dementia and their caregivers to live by joining this webinar on Dementia Friendly America.
Through the work of over 35 national, leading organizations and co-chaired and administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a), the Dementia Friendly America (DFA) initiative is catalyzing a movement to more effectively support and serve those who are living with dementia and their care partners. There are now over 45 communities across 36 states that are part of the Dementia Friendly America network. These communities are working across sectors in their community (such as with partners in health care, business and banking, legal and financial, faith communities, and local government) to ensure they are friendly places for people with memory loss and their caregivers to live.
