Action Phase 1: Convene and Educate

During the first phase of becoming a Dementia Friendly city we convened key community leaders and members to help them understand dementia and its implications for our community.  We then established an “Action Team” to lead our efforts.


Step 1: Community members from the North and South have committed to shaping dementia-friendly communities in the State of Nevada.
