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 America initiative. If you believe your community could be the next to adopt this work, visit our Get Involved page.
