Dementia Friends

A dementia friend is somebody that learns about dementia so they can help their community. 

Too many people affected by dementia feel that society fails to understand the condition they live with. Dementia Friends help by raising awareness and understanding, so that people living with dementia can continue to live in the way they want.

Alzhemiers

'This is me' is a simple leaflet for anyone receiving professional care who is living with dementia or experiencing delirium or other communication difficulties. It can be used to record details about a person who can't easily share information about themselves.
