Dementia Friendly Fairfax

Dementia Friendly Fairfax

Learn how to become a dementia friend and turn your new understanding of dementia into a practical action that can help someone living in your community.

 

AFTER PARTICIPATING IN A DEMENTIA FRIENDS SESSION, PARTICIPANTS CAN:

• Describe dementia and know the most common type of dementia

• State the five key messages about dementia

• Explain one approach to effectively communicate with a person with dementia

• Commit to an action as a Dementia Friend in your community

Dementia Friendly Fairfax envisions our community as a place where people living with dementia and their care partners will be able to engage in a variety of activities, be supported in the highest quality of life, and can live independently for as long as possible. Dementia Friendly Fairfax initiative started through a partnership with Goodwin House, Insight Memory Care Center and Fairfax Area Commission on Aging and Fairfax Area Agency on Aging.
