Dementia Friendly Community

A Dementia Friendly Community is “a place where people living with dementia are understood, respected, and supported; an environment where people living with dementia will be confident that they can contribute to life” (Alzheimer’s Society webpage).  The ELANCO Dementia Friendly Community initiative supports this definition by providing training for individuals, businesses, and congregations in order to increase awareness of and provide support for persons and care partners within our community who live daily with the impact of dementia.  Through specific training programs, memory cafes, providing educational resources and more, we seek to make ELANCO a community where all who live with the effect of dementia feel safe, supported, and empowered.
