What is a Dementia Friendly business?

As we strive to create a welcoming, knowledgeable atmosphere in the realm of dementia awareness, we will be contacting businesses and accepting partnerships to strengthen our Dementia Friendly WNC mission and create a unique differentiator to your business model.

According to research commissioned by the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org), Alzheimer’s disease costs U.S. businesses billions each year, stemming from lost productivity and absenteeism with primary caregivers and the business share of health and long-term care expenses. On the customer front, making it easier for people with dementia to do everyday business out in the community has clear benefits:

  • Retain existing customers. If customers who have dementia and their family caregivers don’t find it easy to use a business, they will likely seek out another.
  • Attract new customers. 60% of North Americans with dementia live at home, often with support from families, friends, and the community. Staying engaged in community life means using the businesses that are easy to navigate and have helpful, aware staff.
