People with dementia don’t just lose their memories; they can also lose their friends. This is because people with dementia can start to behave differently. And sometimes those friends might not understand or know how to react.
However, it is possible to live well with dementia, especially with the support of friends. No matter how big, or how small, every action counts.
That’s because people with dementia need friends more than ever.
That’s why we’re creating one million Dementia Friends, who will help people with dementia to live well for longer.
Anybody can become a friend. It’s as simple as just understanding a bit more about dementia. We will give you helpful tips and small ideas to help you support the people you know with dementia and their carers.
