Dementia Friendly WNC is a grass roots organization dedicated to creating a community where all members are respected and valued.

 We believe:

  • A community that is aware of and understands dementia is accepting and willing to help
  • Persons living with dementia and their care partners should have the opportunity for meaningful engagement in community life
  • Persons living with dementia and their care partners should have strong family and community support systems to continue living at home.
  • Dementia services should reach those who are undeserved

We strive to:

  • Listen to the voices of persons living with dementia
  • Raise community awareness and change negative attitudes about dementia
  • Involve government, healthcare, faith communities, and local businesses in becoming dementia friendly
  • Strengthen family and community support systems
  • Promote meaningful engagement of persons living with dementia in community life
  • Unite community efforts to work together on new models of care
