"Yes. I live with dementia. Let me help you understand."
When it comes to telling the stories of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, we're letting the experts do the talking: people with lived experience of dementia. Our vibrant ambassadors are openly and honestly sharing their stories to show Canadians a pathway to understanding. After all, who better to educate the public about stigma against dementia than those who face it every day?
By highlighting the humanity that is part of every single person living with dementia, our campaign seeks to convert judgement into compassion and assumptions into understanding.
We invite Canadians to visit ilivewithdementia.ca to read and watch the compelling stories of people getting on with their life in spite of dementia, get tips on how to help end stigma and download other useful resources.
It's time to see dementia differently. Check out ilivewithdementia.ca for useful information and resources to help you learn more and take action to end dementia stigma.
