What Makes You a Dementia Friend?
You become a Dementia Friend by attending a one-hour
an informational session to learn about this worldwide movement,
about living with dementia, and the simple things you can do to
support someone living with the disease.
What Happens at the Information Session?
The one-hour session is a discussion led by a Dementia Friends
Champion. It is not a training session. You’ll learn what dementia
is, what it’s like to live with the disease, and some tips for
communicating with people who have dementia. Everyone
who attends is asked to turn their new understanding of
dementia into a practical action that can help someone living
in your community. The action can be as big or as small as you
choose—every action counts!
is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by
the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends initiative is underway in Minnesota
and across the United States. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it aﬀects families, each of us can make a diﬀerence for people touched by dementia.
