Licensure through Dementia Friendly America is required to be able to offer a Dementia Friends program.  The organization volunteering to offer the Dementia Friends program for their state will have to meet a number of requirements. Some of these include:

  • A one-time licensure fee
  • Ability to train Dementia Friends Champions statewide
  • Offering in-person Dementia Friends sessions
  • Tracking and reporting the number of Dementia Friends in your state

Only one Dementia Friends license can be issued per state.
