What is a Dementia Friend?
A Dementia Friend is someone who has attended an informational session to help people with dementia be understood and supported in their communities. The goal is to help everyone in a community understand five key messages about dementia, how it affects people, and how we each can make a difference in the lives of people living with the disease. This is a global movement that started in the UK and is now underway in the US. The state of Washington has a program, which now includes Clark County as of January 2021! Please come to an informational session to learn more about Dementia Friends.
