Dementia 613 - by the Dementia Society

Becoming dementia-friendly

Help make the 613 a more dementia-friendly place to live.

Find out how to become dementia-friendly

At the Dementia Society, we believe that no one should face dementia alone.

That means continuing to live well in the community with a diagnosis of dementia or memory trouble. Staying social and engaged can help delay and slow dementia. You have the power to help make our region a more inclusive place for people living with dementia, their caregivers and families.

By learning to recognize the symptoms and behaviours brought on by dementia, and to support people living with dementia so they can continue to live meaningful lives in the community—shopping, dining, accessing recreational or other services—you can help to make the 613 area a better, more inclusive community. People living with dementia and their caregivers and families are your customers, clients and neighbours. Help them access your goods and services by becoming dementia-friendly.
