Dementia Friendly Massachusetts

Sign up for our mailing list

Dementia Friendly Massachusetts is state-wide, grassroots movement comprised of organizations, individuals, and municipalities growing dementia friendly communities to become more inclusive and supportive of those living with dementia, their families, and care partners. Dementia Friendly Massachusetts is a member of Dementia Friendly America and is generously supported by Tufts Health Plan Foundation.

We are launching quarterly, in-person, regional meetings to better support communities in sharing lessons learned, challenges, opportunities, and resources found along the road to becoming dementia friendly.  New and familiar faces will join to launch an exciting and invigorating 2018 Dementia Friendly Massachusetts.  Let’s invite friends, family, and colleagues to explore how they might also get involved!
