National Council

Since its launch in 2015, Dementia Friendly America has relied on the generous support of select National Council members to grow its network of communities, number of Dementia Friends and library of resources for those engaged in this work.

To support Dementia Friendly America’s continued growth, DFA will launch new membership opportunities soon!
