Section: June Associate Newsletter

Nearly six million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia. Dementia Friendly America, an initiative administered by n4a, joins with others across the country in raising awareness of dementia—and ways we can all play a role in making our communities more friendly to those living with dementia.

In addition to becoming a Dementia Friend online at, 26 states are offering live Dementia Friends sessions. There are over 98,311 Dementia Friends currently.

Help us reach over 100,000 Dementia Friends! Dementia Friendly America, in addition to supporting the development of dementia-friendly communities, operates Dementia Friends USA, which is part of a global movement developed by the Alzheimer's Society in the United Kingdom. The goal of Dementia Friends is to help everyone in a community understand what dementia is, how it affects people and how everyone can make a difference for people touched by dementia. Dementia Friendly America and Dementia Friends are both administered by n4a.
