Step One: Reach Out to the Community

Dementia-friendly communities work best when they’re led and fed by members of the community.  Gather people from your city or town who have expressed enthusiasm or hold a community awareness meeting and form your ‘action team.’

Hosting an informational session can inform the general public about the intention of introducing dementia-friendly actions.  Invitation and outreach materials are available to help generate interest and recruit residents, civic leaders, and local government officials.

Consider pursuing both age- and dementia-friendly initiatives together.
