An estimated 425,000 Australians are living with dementia. You can pledge your support and become a Dementia Friend, to assist in making a positive difference to the lives of people living with dementia.

Dementia Awareness Month is Dementia Australia’s national awareness-raising campaign held every year throughout September. As part of this awareness, the organisation encourages individuals and organisations to become a Dementia Friend.

What is a dementia friend?

The Dementia Friends program is an informative online resource available to anyone interested in knowing more about dementia. The goal of the program is for a person to be empowered to do small, everyday things that can make a big difference to a person living with dementia.

People living with dementia can find it challenging to participate actively in the community. This is due, in part, to a lack of knowledge or understanding of the condition among the general public and how it can impact people.

In fact, a recent survey that found people living with dementia reported that they often experience embarrassing situations, feel strongly disconnected, and sometimes feel useless.

By becoming a Dementia Friend, and increasing your awareness of dementia impacts, you can help a family member, friend, or even co-worker living with dementia feel accepted, included and involved. With compassion and understanding, you can positively change the life of someone living with dementia.

Who can become a dementia friend?

The great news is that anyone can become a Dementia Friend. Already thousands of people, from politicians to businesses and individuals have signed up and pledged their support for people with dementia.
