Dementia Friendly Naperville
Through the efforts of the Senior Task Force and a committee of individuals from numerous organizations in the community, Naperville is proud to have been named a Dementia Friendly City in late 2020. This designation from Dementia Friendly America showcases Naperville as a community that "fosters the ability of people living with dementia to remain in the community and engage and thrive in day-to-day living."
Dementia Friendly America defines a dementia friendly community as "a village, town, city or county that is informed, safe and respectful of individuals with the disease, their families and caregivers and provides supportive options that foster quality of life."
