Dementia Friendly America (DFA), of which Home Instead, Inc., is a member, today announced the U.S. launch of the Dementia Friends campaign, a global initiative that aims to empower and educate individuals about dementia.
Dementia Friends is designed to raise awareness about dementia and help communities understand how they can best support and interact with people living with dementia, according to Olivia Mastry, who helped found DFA.
The program accomplishes this via an online training that involves watching a series of short videos – which Home Instead’s Creative Services department created – and committing to take action. As part of the program, Dementia Friends provides suggestions for even little things individuals can do to help those with dementia disorders live well in their communities.
View the program trailer, produced by our Creative Services team, below.
