Building dementia-friendly communities: A priority for everyone

The Alzheimer's Society launched this key report last week setting out 10 priority areas that communities can focus on to work towards becoming dementia-friendly. In particular, it explores the barriers that people face in their community, how they would like to be engaged in their local area and the support they need to empower them to do so. Overall, it aims to provide guidance to areas that are looking to become dementia-friendly and to provide extra evidence for those already committed to becoming dementia-friendly. New and existing evidence, including references to several Housing LIN resources are collated alongside examples of projects that are making a difference for people with dementia.
