Forget Me Not Symbol
The Alzheimer Society uses the Forget me Not flower as a symbol to represent memory loss, one of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. It is also a reminder to remember people with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias and their caregivers.
The three flowers in the symbol represent the person with dementia, the caregiver and the Alzheimer Society.
