Government

Local government can become dementia friendly by training staff who interact with the public such as city council members, city inspectors, city planners, emergency responders, human services staff, police/sheriff, and public health staff on how to recognize the signs of dementia, how to communicate effectively with people who have dementia and their families and by creating dementia friendly physical environments.

City/county ordinances, policies, and emergency preparedness plans are also important considerations for a community striving to become dementia friendly.
