Mapping dementia-friendly communities across europe

‘Mapping dementia-friendly communities across Europe’ is a study commissioned by EFID and undertaken by the Mental Health Foundation in 2014 and 2015.

The research originated from a shared interest, by the foundations engaged in EFID, to conduct an analysis of concepts and practices of what it is commonly referred to as ‘dementia-friendly communities’ (DFCs) and similar initiatives across Europe. The aim of the report is to provide practical information, guidance and examples to support good practice around sustainable, inclusive and supportive environments for people living with dementia and their carers.
The report is accompanied by an online collection of case studies that illustrate the diversity of ‘dementia-friendly community’ activity in Europe.
The online ‘mapping paper’ “Collection of dementia-friendly community case studies across Europe” is available here.
