Movement Towards Better Understanding, Respect and Support for People With Dementia (BSI / Department of Health / Dementia Challenge)

Summary

The British Standards Institute (BSI) and Alzheimer’s Society are working jointly to codify a standard benchmark for all communities wishing to work towards becoming dementia-friendly. The aim of PAS 1365 is to define exactly what constitutes a dementia friendly community; this will outline how communities can work to become dementia friendly and help establish a minimum level of standardisation. 63 towns and cities have committed to work towards achieving dementia-friendly community status.
