Dementia-Friendly Business Initiative

The Dementia Friendly Orange County (DFOC) project, launched in November 2015, trains businesses in understanding dementia and how to assist customers who have it. To date, 75 business and organizations are Dementia Friendly partners.  More information is available at Dementia Friendly Orange County and Dementia Friendly Orange County Facebook.

Through Dementia Friendly Training, a business can:

  • Become a part of the solution!
  • Develop an awareness of serving customers with cognitive impairments
  • Identify dementia-friendly practices and environments
  • Increase inclusivity
