As a Community Action Group of the Dementia Friendly Nevada initiative, the Pesa Sooname Advisory Group aims to develop and promote a community that is respectful, educated, supportive and inclusive of people living with dementia and their care partners. We use the Dementia Friendly America process to accomplish this goal, and work using an “authentic partnerships” approach, which involves direct engagement of people living with dementia and their care partners.

Dementia Friendly Nevada has–as a statewide network–decided that while we are unable to meet in-person due to COVID-19, our individual monthly Community Group meetings would be replaced by monthly meetings of the entire Dementia Friendly Nevada community! Find information about those meetings here.
