Event Description

WB400: Banking and Financial Services for a Dementia Friendly America


In a dementia friendly community, banks and financial services are aware of dementia and responsive to the individual needs of persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Financial services professionals can use dementia friendly practices to help maintain clients’ independence while protecting them from problems such as unpaid expenses, squandered resources, avoidable guardianship, and financial abuse, neglect, or exploitation. This webinar, co-hosted by NCRC and Dementia-Friendly America, explores dementia friendly banking research, tools and resources for fostering communities that effectively serve  people living dementia and their family and friend care partners.


Participants will: 

  • Learn how banks are becoming age-friendly, as well as specific dementia friendly tools and resources.
  • Hear about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s work with banks to protect older people from financial exploitation—including people with cognitive impairments—as well as other resources for older adults, their caregivers and key practitioners.
  • Access the latest research and resources that will support dementia friendly community efforts focused on banking.


  • Meredith Hanley, Community Capacity Building Director, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging
  • Cynthia Hutchins, Director of Financial Gerontology, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Karen Kali, Program Manager of National Neighbors Silver, NCRC
  • Dr. Jason Karlawish,  Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
