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 dementia.
The idea is to become a "friend", learn more about living with dementia and then turn that knowledge 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.
Take it one step further and become an Ambassador to help spread the message
Are you a Dementia Friend?
