Dementia Friends USA
DFA is the U.S. licensee of the international Dementia Friends program, a global movement, developed by the Alzheimer's Society in the United Kingdom, that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia.
By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia. A Dementia Friend is someone who, through viewing a series of online videos, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend – we all have a part to play in creating dementia friendly communities!
