Dementia-Friendly Communities2019-12-30T08:53:34-05:00

Toronto has joined the global movement to build a Dementia-Friendly Community™

In a Dementia-Friendly Community™, people living with dementia are included in all aspects of community life and their rights are respected. Community members, businesses, and organizations promote the independence and safety of people living with dementia by learning, raising awareness, and working together. The Alzheimer Society of Toronto’s goal is to educate the community so that our neighbourhoods are places where people living with dementia and their care partners feel valued and empowered.

The 46,000 people living with dementia in Toronto and their care partners are your potential customers, clients, and neighbours. They may face challenges accessing your goods or services.
