Building Dementia Friendly Communities…One Friend at a time
A Dementia Friend learns more about dementia and what they can do to help make our province a more accessible and inclusive place for those affected by it.
Anyone can become a Dementia Friend. Through our monthly Dementia Friends e-newsletter, we share practical tips, information and strategies with Dementia Friends, providing a convenient way to learn more on an ongoing basis.
By learning more and using this knowledge in their everyday interactions, Dementia Friends help reduce stigma and make our communities more supportive, accessible and inclusive for people affected by dementia.
By becoming a Dementia Friend, you will learn more about dementia and how it affects individuals, families, and communities. Friends also become better informed about how their own communities can strive to be more dementia friendly and better support those in their midst that are affected by it.
Friends can help to combat the stigma often associated with dementia by sharing their own stories and talking openly about dementia. Whether you choose to share on social media or in conversations amongst your networks, you can help make our communities more dementia friendly by sharing what you have learned and why dementia matters to you.
The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan will provide tips and information about how Friends can get involved, but you can also make an impact by encouraging others to get informed and become Friends too. Together we can build a dementia friendly Saskatchewan, one Friend at a time.
