Dementia Friendly Missoula

Join the coalition to make Missoula a welcoming and supportive community for people living with dementia and their caregivers!

Dementia Friendly Missoula is a volunteer coalition affiliated with Missoula Aging Services and is the local chapter of the national Dementia Friendly America movement. We are community members, healthcare professionals, and organizations who advocate for the independence, dignity, and health of people living with dementia in Missoula County.
 


What does Dementia Friendly Missoula do?

We seek to:

  1. Raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
     
  2. Educate and support adults living with dementia and their caregivers.
     
  3. Build a network of businesses, faith communities, and other community groups committed to becoming more dementia friendly.
