Purple Angel

Dementia Friendly Business Training

What is Purple Angel?

The Purple Angel Initiative trains businesses and organizations in our community to recognize, communicate with, and create a welcoming and safe environment for people with dementia and their caregivers. This helps businesses become “Dementia Friendly,” letting the community know that their place of business is accessible and safe for people with dementia.
