Dementia Friends launched in February 2013, after only two years, Dementia Friends became one of the biggest ever social movements on any disease. The Dementia Friends Movement gained momentum during the 2015 White House Conference on Aging. People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. To provide this helping hand, Dementia Friends aims to give people an understanding of dementia and the small things that they can do to make a difference. From helping someone to find the right bus, to spreading the word about dementia on social media - every action counts.
