Dementia Friends Canada

Dementia Friends Canada is an initiative of the Alzheimer Society and the Government of Canada. It is designed to help all Canadians, health care providers and consumers alike, to gain more understanding of the realities of living with dementia.

According to Dementia Friends Canada, to be a Dementia Friend you need to know the signs of dementia (the website features a one and a half minute video describing signs of dementia), be patient with those with dementia and commit to taking action to support those living with dementia using patience and kindness (a more detailed list of actions that can support those living with dementia is made available after registering to be a Dementia Friend).
