Why Be a Dementia Friendly City?

There are more than 120 types of dementia for which there is currently no cure. More than 60% of individuals living with dementia live in your neighborhood and use the businesses and services in your community. Caregivers are dying faster than those living with dementia. Won’t you join our efforts to make their days more meaningful? Please Join Us

You know, people get frustrated because their loved ones who have Alzheimer’s, oh, he doesn’t recognize me anymore, how can I recognize this person, if they don’t recognize me? They’re not the same person.  
Well, they are the same person, but they’ve got a brain disease. And it’s not their fault they’ve got this disease.

 

~ Ronald Reagan

Chances are, you know someone who suffers from dementia or is a care partner to a person with dementia
