Overview of Dementia Friendly Tempe

Tempe is working with Dementia Friendly America and local partners to become a “Dementia Friendly Community.” Please note that dementia refers to a chronic progressive health condition that affects memory and thinking abilities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. 

The first part of our efforts is to evaluate how various sectors of our community -- such as business, government, healthcare etc. -- are equipped to work with the growing population of Tempeans who are living with a memory loss condition like dementia or caring for a person who is affected. Caregivers in this survey refer to family members or friends who routinely provide direct help, hands on care or support to a person with memory loss/ dementia.

This is the survey for those who are caregivers for someone living with dementia in Tempe. If this does not apply to you, click here to find a more appropriate survey.

Services and supports for family caregivers of people with dementia are needed in communities striving to become dementia friendly. They include counseling, support groups, caregiver coaching, care consultation, respite, and education and training on dementia and care needs. 

Before you complete the survey below, you can take a few minutes to watch the video below to learn a little more about the "Dementia Friendly" Process.

Each and every part of the community can work towards becoming dementia friendly. As each sector takes its own steps to foster support, a community that is informed, safe and respectful emerges to foster quality of life for those living with dementia and their care partners.  This graphic shows how all sectors in our community can make a difference.
