Help Us Reach Our Goal of 100,000 Dementia Friends

There are more than 90,000 Dementia Friends across the country! Help us spread the word about ways individuals can take simple actions to make communities more friendly for those living with dementia. Every one of us has a unique part to play in the lives of people living with dementia. Join other Dementia Friends in a movement that is changing the way people think, act and talk about dementia.

Did you know individuals can become a Dementia Friend online? From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Many Dementia Friends programs are adapting during the coronavirus crisis by offering live, virtual sessions instead of in-person sessions. If your state hasn't joined the movement yet, check out to learn how you can get involved!
