Step Three: Raise awareness

Before they can take dementia-friendly actions, community members need to understand exactly what dementia is and what it means for people who are living with the disease. There are lots of ways you can raise awareness, such as:

  • Becoming Dementia Friends – For more information, visit
  • Alzheimer’s Association Community Awareness training
  • Dementia-friendly night at the local library where a person living with the disease talks about what it would mean to live in a dementia-friendly community.
