Help Make Richmond a Dementia-Friendly Community

The City of Richmond has received an Age-Friendly Grant from the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) to create a Dementia-Friendly Community Action Plan for Richmond.

The creation of an action plan for Richmond will provide City staff and community partners with a common vision on initiatives and actions to assist people affected by dementia. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. defines a dementia-friendly community as one that focuses on the inclusion of people living with dementia and on stigma reduction. This project further supports Richmond as an age-friendly community ensuring accessibility and inclusion for all ages.

Those living with dementia and those affected by dementia – including friends, family, caregivers, neighbours and coworkers are invited to share their input and thoughts about this project.

How you can be involved:

  • Attend a focus group during the month of June at one of the locations/dates listed under Important Dates. Participants will be asked to share their experiences living with dementia and/or caring for someone living with dementia which will provide valuable input that will be used to create a dementia-friendly community action plan for Richmond. More details and registration information can be found at www.richmond.ca/dementiafriendly
  • Those caring for someone living with dementia are invited to register for two focus groups specifically designed for caregivers.
  • Everyone is encouraged to complete the online survey below. The deadline to complete the survey is Sunday, July 1, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Review the document library for additional information on Dementia-Friendly Communities
  • Spread the word and share this information with anyone who may benefit
