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 and other dementias and their caregivers.

The three flowers in the symbol represent the person with dementia, the caregiver, and the Alzheimer Society.
