About

Community-Driven Change: The Dementia Friendly Douglas County community action group aims to develop and promote a community that is respectful, educated, supportive and inclusive of people living with dementia and their care partners. This goal is mobilized through a collaborative, multi-sector approach to community-driven change utilizing the Dementia Friendly America process. Adopting an ‘authentic partnerships’ approach, the direct engagement of people living with dementia and their care partners is central to our values and process. A second aim of Dementia Friendly Douglas County is to promote and expand the reach of the Nevada Dementia Supports Toolbox, evidence-based programs that are currently available within the state to educate and support people living with dementia and their care partners.
