The Town of Fountain Hills is honored to join a growing network of communities in the Dementia Friendly America® program. Dementia Friendly America is a national network of communities, organizations, and individuals seeking to ensure communities across the country are equipped to support people with dementia and their caregivers. Dementia-friendly communities foster the ability of people living with dementia to remain in the community and engage and thrive in day-to-day living. The Town of Fountain Hills is the 10th community in Arizona to receive the Dementia Friendly America designation.
As a dementia-friendly community, Fountain Hills is committed to being a town that is informed, safe, and respectful of individuals living with the disease, their families, and caregivers and the Town is dedicated to providing supportive options to foster quality of life through supportive community connections.
Dementia Friendly Fountain Hills will offer resources through the Memory Café program offered by the Community Center. The Memory Café will provide a caregiver support group and an activity group for those with memory loss. Prestige In-Home Services will provide daily programs and services through the Café.
