Dementia Friendly Fairfax: Become a Dementia Friend!

What is a Dementia Friend?
To become a Dementia Friend, you participate in a Dementia Friends Information Session presented by a Dementia Friends Champion. You will learn five key messages about dementia and a bit about what it's like to live with dementia. As a Dementia Friend you turn your new understanding of dementia into a practical action that can help someone living in your community. Your action can be big or small - because every action counts!

Lindsey Vajpeyi, Director of Education & Outreach, Insight Memory Care Center

Dementia Friendly Fairfax envisions our community as a place where people living with dementia and their care partners will be able to engage in a variety of activities, be supported in the highest quality of life, and can live independently for as long as possible.

Dementia Friendly Fairfax initiative started in July 2019 through a partnership with Goodwin House and Insight Memory Care Center. The Fairfax Area Commission on Aging and Fairfax Area Agency on Aging support Dementia Friendly Fairfax.
