Dementia Awareness

It's more than a ribbon ...

Although a simple purple ribbon on your jacket or a sticker on your car is important and meaningful, Dementia awareness can take many forms. It can also be as basic as learning what Dementia is and isn't, and properly sharing that accurate knowledge with others (we hope that you'll read our definitions pages for more insight).


Another form is something forward-thinkers from around the world have coined as, "Dementia friendly" communities. In addition to the Dementia Society of America® (DSA), there are two associated coalitions leading the national effort: Dementia  Friendly America® (DFA), and Dementia Friends USA™.


Want to join our efforts to support the development of Dementia Friendly America communities around the country?
