Local Government Toolkit
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. launched the Dementia-Friendly Communities Local Government Toolkit on September 21, 2015 at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Convention.
This resource provides information on dementia and dementia-friendly communities, steps and practical tools to begin a Dementia-Friendly Action Plan, as well as examples of how local governments can create communities where people living with dementia, as well as their caregivers and families, are welcomed, acknowledged and included.
The practical suggestions and checklists in the resource are compiled from evidence-based best practices and new approaches that show promise in communities across the world.
