A Dementia-Friendly Community (DFC) understands dementia and knows how to support persons with dementia (PWD) living among them.
It is where the public are patient and helpful when they encounter awkward behaviour by PWD.
This includes businesses that are trained to resolve situations that arise from PWDs.
It is a community where we treat others the way we would want to be treated, should we ever encounter the condition.
There are many scenarios involving PWD that can happen in our community or workplace. However, with the help of these guidelines, you will be able to interact and assist PWD in most situations.
