What is a Dementia Friend?

A Dementia Friend is someone who either:

  • attends an Information Session, or
  • watches the Dementia Friends online video.

They learn five key messages about dementia and a little bit about what it is like to live with dementia. They then turn their understanding into a practical action that could help someone with dementia living in their community. Their action could be as big or as small as they choose – because every action counts!

What is an Information Session?
Dementia Friends Information Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer's Society. Each Information Session lasts around one hour. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities.
