RESOURCES FOR TRAINED DEMENTIA FRIENDS CHAMPIONS

Thank you for being a Dementia Friends Champion!  You are part of thousands of other Champions across the world to create dementia-friendly communities and improve the lives of people living with dementia. 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.
