Building Dementia Capable Communities

United Way recently supported the development of a dementia capable communities toolkit in partnership with the statewide ACT on Alzheimer’s Coalition. The toolkit can be used to help understand: the impact of an increase in the number of people with dementia; the effect this will have on communities; and to plan for the demographic shift. You, your neighbors, businesses, faith communities, organizations — everyone across your community can take action to create a supportive environment for people with dementia and their families.
Access the Toolkit.
