Become a Dementia Friend (free)



Do you come across the general public. Nearly all of us would say yes.

Work, Colleagues, Friends and Family

It take's one hour to learn about Dementia and how to help.

Did you know someone with Dementia may see a black door mat as a black hole and suddenly stop and not want to walk on it.

Dementia may affect language – for example, difficulties following a conversation or finding the right word for something. Have you meet someone like this and wish they would hurry up as you are busy. Would you know by looking at them they may have Dementia.

A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend.

Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts
