The Alzheimer Society of Canada in partnership with the Canadian Government has recently launched a new online campaign, titled Dementia Friends, aimed at raising awareness of dementia and how to better support those living with the disease. "A Dementia Friend is someone who learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into simple actions that can help people with dementia live well. Registering to become a Dementia Friend is easy and means joining a growing number of individuals and workplaces who are increasing awareness and creating positive change." To register to become a Dementia Friend, visit www.dementiafriends.ca
