Do you understand dementia?

Alzheimer's Society research shows that 41% of people in the North East feel they have a role to play to support people with dementia, but only 48% feel they have a good understanding of the disease.

'Dementia Friends' is an initiative to help a million people understand how to speak sensitively to a person suffering from dementia. The project helps people to make those with dementia feel included and understood.
