Dementia Friendly Dubuque wishes to promote change and education in the community to create a more informed, safe, and respectful place for people living with dementia and their caregivers. They plan to expand their heritage of strong support for families impacted by dementia and strengthen the programming in the Dubuque Community from smaller advocate groups to the community at large.
