The Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friendly Communities recognition scheme celebrates the work of dementia-friendly communities across the country.
A dementia-friendly community is a city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported. In a dementia-friendly community people will be aware of and understand dementia, so that people with dementia can continue to live in the way they want to and in the community they choose.
