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: Create an Action Team; Identify a Leader or Co-Leaders

Step Two: Engage with Residents

Step Three: Develop an Action Plan & Begin Implementation

Step Four: Be Recognized for your Commitment

Step Five: Celebrate Progress and look for ways to Continue to Improve
