Your Community Can ACT Together
A community working toward becoming dementia friendly can get a jump start and a clear process by using the resources noted above. In the illustration below, you can find dementia friendly resources for all sectors of a community by clicking on the individual clouds.
Creating a dementia-friendly community involves:
- Raising awareness about Alzheimer’s, transforming attitudes, and moving people to action
- Supporting family and friend caregivers by providing accessible information, resources, and in-person support
- Promoting meaningful participation in community life for everyone
- Including communities that experience inequities because of race, ethnicity, culture, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental illness, hearing/sensory differences, intellectual or physical abilities, and economic status
