A Guide for Creating Dementia Friendly Communities in Alberta
Using this guide
This guide documents the steps we took, and the lessons we learned along the way, in our Dementia Friendly Communities pilot project. It is intended to be used as a guide to creating a Dementia Friendly Community in other communities. You will find recommended steps, helpful tips, case studies and resources to guide you on your journey.
You may find there will be differences in how you apply this process based on many factors including the size of your community, the resources available to you and the services or resources available within your community, whether your community is urban or rural, and other variables.
This is not intended to provide a ‘one size fits all’ approach to creating a Dementia Friendly Community, but rather guide you through a process, provide templates, and other useful information that will enable you to identify and meet the unique needs of your community.
