Alzheimer’s Speaks believes it is time to become dementia friendly. We believe hope not fear, is our common bond. The statistics on dementia are staggering. Businesses, communities and individuals need to become dementia friendly because there is no cure and understanding of the disease is limited. Our Dementia Friendly Campaign is designed to shift perceptions, create acceptance and provide the resources individuals, businesses and communities need.
