Welcome Charlotte Mecklenburg, NC to the DFA Network

This week we are welcoming Charlotte Mecklenburg County to the growing list of dementia friendly communities!

Dementia Friendly Charlotte Mecklenburg (DFCM) consists of organizations and individuals seeking to raise awareness about dementia while transforming attitudes to reduce stigma and barriers, create safe environments and improve quality of life for all who are living with dementia in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. The DFCM Steering Committee is comprised of diverse members, including government organizations, local universities, faith communities and dementia-specific associations. The initiative has been hard at work and has already developed a Dementia Friendly Business toolkit that helps local businesses to become certified Dementia Friendly Partners.
