Dementia Friendly Businesses

How to become a dementia friendly retailer

Our new guide

Dementia is one of the greatest challenges we face in society today. All businesses can contribute to tackling the social and economic impact of dementia. From retail to housing, utilities to entertainment, finance to transport, all sectors have a part to play.

Statistics show that less than half (47%) of people living with dementia feel a part of their community (Alzheimer’s Society, 2013), and 28% said they have given up even getting out of the house.

Businesses and organisations can make a big difference for people with dementia and their carers by making a commitment to become more dementia-friendly. Becoming a dementia-friendly business is not only a socially responsible step but can also bring economic benefits.

Our new Dementia Friendly Businesses guide outlines exactly how changes in three key areas - People, Processes, and Places - can make your business as dementia-friendly as possible. Please complete the form below to access the guide.
