A Quest to Become Dementia-Friendly

posted Mon, Feb 5, 2018   by U.S. News & World Report

Many communities are looking for insight on becoming more accessible to people with dementia and their caregivers. This article from U.S. News & World Report looks at Minnesota's ACT on Alzheimer's, a model for those seeking to establish dementia- and Alzheimer's-friendly communities. Already adopted by a number of states across the country, the initiative seeks to equip communities with tools to accommodate residents with dementia. The article also looks at the impact of specific dementia-focused changes to public spaces in destigmatizing cognitive impairments, making the community more friendly to people of all abilities.
