Business Training

The Dementia Friendly @ Work training is a one hour educational session for staff of business and service organizations and all other community settings.  Originally developed by Dementia Friendly America (DFA) partner ACT on Alzheimer's, the training focuses on understanding dementia and taking action to create an environment that is safe, respectful, and welcoming for people living with dementia.

By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias is estimated to reach 7.1 million -- a 40 percent increase from the 5.2 million age 65 and older affected in 2015. These numbers represent family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, colleagues, clients, and customers.

We offer free training to groups, organizations, and businesses about how they can be recognized as dementia-friendly! 

Dementia Friendly @ Work - heightening business awareness of dementia and equips them to respond warmly and effectively when serving people living with dementia and their families.
