Dementia Friendly Organisations

What is a Dementia Friendly Organisation?

Dementia Friendly Organisation SymbolIt is a business which recognises its role in supporting the achievement of a dementia friendly community through strategic aims that are appropriate within its own context.

Over 830,000 people in the UK have a diagnosis of dementia with many more undiagnosed but living with the condition. It is estimated that 1 in 3 of us care for or know someone living with dementia.

Why Become a Dementia Friendly Organisation?

There is no doubt it is in the interest of all organisations (care, charity or commercial) to become dementia friendly. It is a way to support local community, customers and employees who are most likely affected by the disease. There is a real case for organisations to become dementia friendly including improving productivityretentionreputation, and compliance with Equality Legislation.  Find out what it means to be a dementia friendly organisation and how we can support you.
