Each person's experiences with dementia, including your own, are unique. What ties you to dementia can come in different forms – you could be a person living with dementia, a family caregiver, a healthcare provider or a researcher, to name a few examples.
Sharing your personal experiences is vital to increasing awareness of dementia across Canada.
There are many ways that your voice can help others living with the disease:
- Your voice helps us fight stigma.
- Your voice informs where we should focus our research priorities.
- Your voice gives credible support to policy changes that can improve the quality of life and care for you and other people who experience – and will experience – the realities of dementia.
