Creating a Dementia Friendly Western Australia

A dementia-friendly community is a place where people with dementia are supported to continue living with meaning, purpose and value. Each dementia-friendly community will be different to the next, but will include at least one or more of the following:
 
  • Businesses that provide accessible services for people with dementia, including staff who understand the disease and know how to communicate effectively with people with dementia.
  • Organisations that provide paid work.
  • Volunteering opportunities.
  • Sporting clubs and social groups that are welcoming and inclusive.
  • Adult education facilities that support new learning such as learning a new language or instrument.
  • Environments that are enabling and compensate for the disabilities of dementia.
