Living with Dementia

Dementia Friends

One million ‘Dementia Friends’ will help make life better for people with dementia

The Dementia Friends scheme, launched today by Prime Minister David Cameron, is the country’s biggest ever project to change the way people think about dementia.

Under the scheme, which is led by the Alzheimer’s Society, people will be given free awareness sessions to help them understand dementia better and become Dementia Friends.

The scheme… One million ‘Dementia Friends’ will help make life better for people with dementia
