About

Dementia Friendly Fairfax

Dementia Friendly Fairfax is an initiative to bring awareness and support for those living with dementia and their care partners in Fairfax County, Virginia.

Dementia Friendly Fairfax envisions our community as a place where people living with dementia and their care partners

  • will be able to engage in a variety of activities,

  • be supported in the highest quality of life,

  • and can live independently for as long as possible.

 

The Fairfax Area Commission on Aging and Fairfax Area Agency has included DF Fairfax initiative in the SHAPE Plan (formerly 50+ plan) to better serve older adults in our community.
