Press Release – Spokane Area Dementia Friendly Community Survey

September 8, 2020

As it’s predicted that the number of Washingtonians living with Alzheimer’s disease will continue to increase, the Spokane Area Dementia Friendly Community is working to make our county a better place for the number of people living with dementia. As a group, our first goal is to conduct a county-wide community needs assessment survey to assess Spokane area’s strengths, gaps, and priorities regarding Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Specifically, this quick survey (about 15 minutes) will be anonymous and accessed through a link that recipients can fill out online.

The Spokane Are Dementia Friendly Community is looking for individuals to complete this survey and we could use your help. We are especially interested in the insight individuals who work in the following sectors can offer; Community-Based Services and Supports, Communities of Faith, Family Care Partners, Hospitals / Acute Care Settings, Local Government / Agencies, and Residential Care. We are also very interested in insight from community members living with dementia and their family members. If you do not belong in any of these groups but still want to respond to our survey, please do as we are looking for all insight.

To participate in our survey or share this with your network, please head to the following link: Survey

Individuals must complete the survey by October 9th, 2020. If you have any follow up questions including requesting paper copies, please reach out to our team at marketing@dshs.wa.gov.
