DFM Recognized Communities  

No community will ever be fully dementia-friendly.  But every community  making progress towards being dementia-friendly should be recognized and celebrated.  Since the Massachusetts Dementia Friendly Initiative began in 2016, communities have received formal recognition for being dementia-friendly.

If your community would like to get involved, here is what you’ll need to do.

Step One: Reach Out to the Community

Step Two: Create an Action Team; Determine a Leader or Co-leaders

Step Three:  Sign the Pledge

Step Four: Raise awareness

Step Five: Engage People Living with Dementia

Step Six: Check out the Data on Your Community

Step Seven: Develop an Action Plan & Implement
