Spokane Area Dementia Friendly Community

Spokane is an official member of the Dementia Friendly America community!

Aging & Long Term Care has partnered with the Washington State Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and Providence Health & Services (including Providence Adult Day Health, Providence Holy Family Hospital, and Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center) to become a member of the Dementia Friendly America (DFA) network. Additional community partners and family care partners supporting people living with dementia strengthen this community-based effort.

A dementia friendly community is a town, city, or county that is respectful toward and informed about individuals with the disease, their families, and their caregivers, and offers support that fosters quality of life. Joining DFA means a community is engaging in a process to become more dementia friendly.

It is predicted that the number of Washingtonians living with Alzheimer’s disease will continue to increase. Our community needs to collaborate to make our city a better place for people living with dementia.
