Living with dementia comes with good days and bad but the most challenging part is the stigma behind it. Canadians with dementia often tell us they feel labelled, dismissed and cut off from friends – even their families.
By reducing stigma and misinformation, we can help them stay connected to their communities and live as well as possible.
Dementia Friends Canada is an Alzheimer Society and Government of Canada initiative to help Canadians better understand what it’s like to live with dementia and how they can help those with the disease remain active and carry on with their daily lives.
Becoming a Dementia Friend is easy and means joining other individuals and workplaces who want to create awareness and positive change.
