Congratulations! Dementia Friendly Tempe was honored recently for its Public-Private partnership between the City of Tempe and Banner Alzheimer’s Institute.

Dementia Friendly Tempe is part of a national network of communities, organizations and individuals seeking to ensure that communities across the U.S. are equipped to support people living with dementia and their caregivers. Dementia friendly communities foster the ability of people living with dementia to remain in community and engage and thrive in day to day living.
