Dementia Friends

An Alzheimer's Society Initative

What is the Dementia Friends initiative?

Dementia Friends is a social movement that aims to increase understanding of dementia and inspire people to take action to support people affected by dementia in their community.

Alzheimer’s society formed the dementia friends programme to create “Dementia Friendly Communities”. This was so communities could become more understanding and inclusive of people affected by dementia.


What is a Dementia Friend?

A Dementia friend is somebody that learns about dementia so they can help in the community. Becoming a Dementia friend helps raises awareness and understanding so that people living with dementia can continue to live in the way they want.


How to become a Dementia Friend?

It’s very easy to become a Dementia Friend. To become a dementia friend, you must attend a dementia friend session and understand five key messages that we think everyone should know about dementia and take dementia-friendly action.


What are Dementia Friends Champions doing?

Bluebird Care Dementia Champions are volunteers in the company. Who encourage others to make a positive difference to people living with dementia. Our Champions host dementia friend sessions in the communities by giving them information about the impacts of dementia and what they can do to help.
