Helping Tempe, Arizona, Be Dementia-Friendly

Watch a video about this winning project from a 2018 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: Tempe, Arizona
GRANTEE: City of Tempe

Tempe is working to become a "dementia-friendly" city. AARP funding was used to install signage enhancements at the Tempe library and senior center and create a training video to increase the number of "dementia friends" and "dementia champions" in the community.

The AARP Community Challenge funds “quick-action” projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
