What is a dementia friendly community?

Dementia friendly communities have the power to change the way we think about living with dementia by enabling everyday services, environments and those within them to better engage with people affected by, or living with, dementia.

A dementia friendly community can be defined as a place or culture in which people with dementia and their carers are empowered, supported and included in society, understand their rights and recognise their full potential.
