Step 4: Be Recognized for your Commitment
To be recognized for their commitment to implement the steps outlined in the community’s action plan, the action team submits the Dementia Friendly Massachusetts (DFM) Pledge, which is available here. Communities can email their signed Pledge to the DFM Project Manager, Patty Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org. The DFM Pledge requires that communities include names and signatures of members of the action team leader(s) and at least one municipal leader or elected official. Communities will be recognized for their commitment. They will receive a certificate and public recognition for being on their way to becoming a dementia friendly community.
