Make Northern Ireland dementia-friendly

Learn about the 5 priorities for action in Northern Ireland.

Promote dementia-friendly communities throughout Northern Ireland and create a dementia-friendly assembly in the first year of the new term.

Public understanding of dementia and how it affects a person can build confidence in our ability to communicate with and relate to people with dementia.  Even small changes in attitudes and behaviour can make a big difference to neighbourhoods, towns and villages for a person with dementia.

The next Assembly should lead the way in making sure that people living with dementia in Northern Ireland are not left isolated. By becoming dementia-friendly, communities around Northern Ireland can make daily living and activities easier and more accessible to people living with dementia. What better way to promote a life-changing initiative than by embedding it at Stormont?
