Dementia Friendly York/Adams

Good News Consulting, Inc, is proud to be a part of the Dementia Friendly America York/Adams Committee. Our chapter of Dementia Friendly America started training Friends (and Champions, who are trained to train new Friends) in March 2019.”

Dementia Friendly America (DFA) is a national network of communities, organizations, professionals and individuals working to ensure that people living with Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia and their caregivers are supported by the community. This initiative, launched in 2015 in Minnesota, has been gradually moving throughout the United States—35 states to be exact!

In late 2018, DFA in York and Adams County was developed to address this growing concern within our community. The York/Adams chapter is one of only a few 'chapters' in Pennsylvania that have embraced the effort.

Since the beginning of 2019, DFA in York and Adams County has trained hundreds of local Dementia Friends. People living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers can feel confident that area businesses are better equipped to support them as the disease progresses.
