Dementia Friends is a social action movement that aims to improve society’s understanding of dementia through five key messages:
Dementia is not a normal part of aging.
Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain.
Dementia is not just about having memory problems.
It is possible to have a good quality of life with dementia.
There’s more to the person than the dementia.
