The Dementia Friends Canada program is a joint initiative between the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the federal government. It is part of an international movement to raise public awareness about de mentia.
The idea is to become a "friend", learn more about living with dementia and then turn that knowledge of dementia into simple actions that can help. Simple things such as checking in with someone with dementia, volunteering, sharing information about dementia. Small things that can make a difference. Are you a Dementia Friend?
