Dementia Friendly Business Resources

A new DFA resource aims to help DFA communities as they encourage local businesses to become dementia friendly. Based on lessons learned from DFA communities, a new DFA tip sheet, Dementia Friendly Businesses and Organizations: Information for Starting a Local Initiative, provides information on the business benefits, criteria, content and best practices businesses can use to become more dementia friendly. The DFA website also includes examples of dementia friendly business trainings such as the Dementia Friendly @ Work program, which can be offered by peers within an agency or business. DFA partner Home Instead offers an Alzheimer’s Friendly Business online course. These resources and more are available in the Dementia Friendly America Resources portal!
