This report, commissioned by the North East Dementia Alliance, might be considered a handbook for people involved in the development of dementia friendly communities. It attempts to identify how dementia friendly communities might be created, covering the core aims of dementia friendly communities and the factors needing to be addressed to achieve those aims. This document explores the knowledge-base concerning how such communities can be brought in to being and fostered. Examples of national best practice are supplied, with a thorough review and analysis of the literature up until the publication date.
