Dementia Friendly Corpus Christi

What is a Dementia Friendly Community?

A Dementia Friendly Community is a village, town, city or county that is informed, safe and respectful of individuals with symptoms of dementia, their families and caregivers and provides supportive options that foster quality of life.

The mission of Dementia Friendly Corpus Christi is to engage with community partners to educate and empower different sectors of our community with information needed to enhance the dignity of persons living with dementia and to reduce stigma and social isolation. Also, to provide educational and supportive services to their families and to those who have been recently diagnosed with a type of dementia.

Who is involved?

Every part of the community plays a role and can work together to take steps to create a dementia friendly culture.
