This film shows five ways you could help a family living with dementia. This film is part of Alzheimer's Society's Remember the person campaign, which asks people to think about the individuals living with dementia and not just the diagnosis. Alzheimer's Society is asking people to think about the people they know living with dementia and about the simple things they can do to make life for them more manageable and enjoyable.
Dementia describes the symptoms caused by some diseases or conditions that affect the brain. Although there is no cure, there are many things that can make life for people with dementia more manageable and enjoyable. With your help, people living with dementia can live well.
Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers.
