Welcome to
Dementia Friends
Pennsylvania

Make a positive difference
in the lives of people
living with dementia.

Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia

Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends initiative is underway in Pennsylvania. 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.

Want to be a Dementia Friend?

To become a Dementia Friend, you join others in a one-hour Dementia Friends Information Session. The session will cover five key messages about dementia and touch on what it is like to live with dementia. As a Dementia Friend you will turn your understanding into a practical action that can help someone with dementia living in your community. The action can be as big or small as you choose, because every action counts!
