Dementia Friends Canada is here – join the movement!
Almost every Canadian knows someone living with dementia. People with dementia often feel excluded or treated differently and are more likely to become socially isolated. Stereotypes or misinformation can intimidate friends and family. Dementia Friends Canada is a national awareness and public engagement initiative. The aim is to create a more aware and informed Canadian population to dispel myths and reduce stigma about dementia. The program focuses on individuals and workplaces, providing the opportunity for people from all walks of life to sign up as a Dementia Friend
What is a Dementia Friend?
A Dementia Friend is someone who learns a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into simple actions that can help people with dementia live well. Registering to become a Dementia Friend is easy and means joining a growing movement of individuals and workplaces who are increasing awareness and creating positive change.
