Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

A city, town or village where people are aware of dementia and understand it, and people with dementia are respected, supported and included in their community. It is led by local people, who work to remove the barriers that stop people with dementia taking part in community life. The Alzheimer's Society has a recognition scheme for dementia-friendly communities.
