A group of Dallas residents concerned about making Dallas dementia-friendly are planning an organizational meeting March 7 from 2-4 p.m. at Juliette Fowler Communities, 1234 Abrams Road, says Ann McKinley with Fowler Communities.

What does a dementia-friendly city look like?

McKinley says the organizers are soliciting ideas and solutions from business owners, families impacted by dementia, health-care providers, faith communities, libraries, government and neighborhood residents.

Dementia Friendly America is a national organization dedicated to impacting the lives of Americans and their families affected by dementia. The Dallas group intends to look for ways to make Dallas a more friendly place to live for those with dementia.
