Dementia Friends

Your surgery is joining thousands of other people, with the aim of creating dementia friendly communities that will improve the lives of people living with dementia. Dementia friends is a social action movement that aims to improve society's understanding of dementia. As a dementia friends practice we aim to promote the following five 5 key messages:

  1. Dementia is not a natural part of ageing
  2. Dementia is caused by brain diseases
  3. It is not just about losing your memory
  4. It is possible to live well with dementia
  5. There is more to the person than the dementia

If you would like to know more, please ask one of the staff at your surgery.
