Dementia-friendly communities

Have you joined the movement yet? Join us as we work with municipalities, professionals, corporations and volunteers to better support people with dementia through our Dementia-Friendly Communities initiative.

The Alzheimer Society of PEI is bringing this initiative to our province. By providing the tools, education and information that community members need, the Society is helpinmunicipalitiesprofessionalscorporations and the public to develop dementia-friendly communities.


The Dementia-Friendly Communities initiative includes:

  • Dementia Friends education to the professional sector, municipalities and the general public so that everyone can take part in creating accessible, inclusive spaces for people with dementia.
  • Education and information toolkits for municipalities and professional sectors across the province.
