Greenwich, Connecticut now Dementia Friendly!

Join us in welcoming the Greenwich community of Connecticut to the DFA Network.

Age & Dementia Friendly Greenwich (ADFG) is a collaborative effort led by the Greenwich Commission on Aging and an Action Team that includes local government officials, key stakeholders, older adults, individuals living with dementia and their care partners. Projects underway include providing Dementia Friends sessions to all sectors of the community and working with the medical community to encourage early and accurate diagnosis of dementia. ADFG has 25 Dementia Champions who promote dementia awareness throughout the community with the goal of fostering an enhanced awareness of what it means to live with dementia—and how individuals can to help ensure that people living with dementia can live, engage, participate and thrive in the Town of Greenwich. Future projects include local certification of Age and Dementia Friendly Businesses and bringing Dementia Friends education to students in grades 6 through 12.
