How can I/We become Dementia Friendly?

Dementia Friendly Communities training will help you better understand the everyday experiences of people with dementia. By becoming Dementia Friendly, you will be better equipped to:

  • recognize the symptoms and signs of dementia.
  • understand the impact of dementia on a persons ability to communicate, make judgements and act.
  • apply dementia friendly communication strategies.
  • identify changes that can be made to the physical and/or social environment to better your patrons.
  • refer people to the Alzheimer Society where appropriate and describe resources available to community members.

  • Becoming more dementia friendly doesn’t mean that you are expected to make a diagnosis, identify if there is a dementia, or ask intrusive questions.
