Center for Age Friendly Excellence (CAFE) has been asked by Santa Clara County to assess all cities in Santa Clara County for dementia friendliness.  CAFE’s qualitative analysis will be a resource for the County in its program as a pilot community for Dementia Friendly America www.dfamerica.org

“Because of our robust and diverse community conversation, Santa Clara County was selected to be a pilot community for Dementia Friendly America.  This new initiative was announced in July at the White House Conference on Aging. A dementia friendly community is defined as one that is informed, safe and respectful of individuals with dementia and their families, provides supportive options and fosters quality of life.”
