Building dementia-friendly communities: A priority for everyone – Alzheimer’s Society [UK] – 2013

Executive Summary

Media release

“In order for dementia-friendly communities to succeed, the views and opinions of people with dementia and their carers must be at the heart of any considerations or decisions. Building dementia-friendly communities: A priority for everyone provides evidence of dementia-friendly communities from the perspective of people affected by dementia. It explores the barriers that people face in their community, how they would like to be engaged in their local area and the support they need to empower them to do so. Overall, the report aims to provide guidance to areas that are looking to become dementia-friendly and to provide extra evidence for those already committed to becoming dementia-friendly. New and existing evidence from people with dementia and their carers is collated alongside examples of projects that are making a difference for people with dementia.”
