Through the work of over 35 national, leading organizations, 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. The lead organizations represent all sectors of community and are collectively leveraging their national reach to activate their local affiliates, members and branches to convene, participate in and support dementia friendly community efforts at a local level.

Communities across the country are actively modeling the DFA movement. They are demonstrating collaborative, community-level change to foster dementia friendliness. Throughout 2016, over 80 communities will join us on the map and sign on to be a part of the Dementia Friendly Initiative.
