Dementia Friendly America

At the White House conference on Aging in July 2015, Santa Clara County was announced as one of the six pilot communities for this new initiative. Santa Clara County is taking the lead by reaching out to the underserved and informing the rest of the public about the roles they play. Currently there are 30,000 residents diagnosed with dementia.

Through the work of over 35 national, leading organization, the Dementia Friendly America initiative is catalyzing a movement to more effectively support and serve those across America who are living with dementia and their family and friend care partners. In less than a year, the Dementia Friendly America movement has expanded to having communities engaged in becoming Dementia Friendly in over 43 states.

Communities and organizations across America are banding together with a unified message for families dealing with dementia: “You are not alone.”  That’s the central theme behind Dementia Friendly America's six pilot communities.
