Alzheimer's & Related Dementias
Partners across the world are coming together to create dementia-friendly communities and improve the lives of people living with dementia. More than 49,000 people over the age of 65 are living with Alzheimer’s disease in Nevada. That number is projected to increase to 65,000 by 2025, the third highest growth rate in the nation. People are living with dementia, and they continue to be vital members of our communities – shopping, dining, working, and thriving. They continue to interact with store owners, restaurant staff, first responders, banking employees and myriad other professionals each day. The State of Nevada action movement aims to improve society’s understanding of dementia and build an infrastructure of support and inclusion for everyone touched by Dementia.
The goal of this program is to help everyone in our community understand messages about dementia, how it affects people and how each of us can make a difference for people living with dementia.
