Dementia Friendly Alabama

Building partnerships to create communities where those with dementia can live and thrive!

What is a dementia friendly community?

Dementia Friendly is much more than simply being kind to those impacted by dementia. A dementia friendly community is one where those living with Alzheimer’s and their care partners feel respected, supported, and included in every day community life.

Those with dementia say they feel marginalized by society and feel excluded by friends, neighbors and every day community life. A landmark announcement made in July 2015 at the White House Conference on Aging launched the start of Dementia Friendly America. Communities, counties and even entire states are now taking action to change this. Montgomery County is one of over 70 communities across 29 states that have expressed an interest in putting Dementia Friendly Alabama “on the map.”

LIST OF DEMENTIA FRIENDLY PARTNERS

With 10,000 people daily turning 65, and age being the greatest risk factor for dementia, Alabama is committed to raising awareness throughout the state, striving to reduce stigma and fostering individual engagement through training and participation within a “dementia friendly community.”

We seek to foster a dementia friendly community by educating the community on the signs of dementia and how best to interact with a person living with dementia and by encouraging all sectors of the community to adopt dementia friendly practices.
