Plenary 5
Dementia Friendly Communities

Chair: Marc Wortmann (United Kingdom) 

    How Nigeria is chipping away at the stigma traditionally attached to dementia by using
the UK’s Dementia Friends programme outline and materials. Adaptations were made to roll the programme
out to help change the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. In the space of a few months
there were over 21 Dementia Friends Champions in 19 of the 36 states of Nigeria.

Maria Howard (Canada)
    Alzheimer’s Society asked people living with dementia ‘How can the world become more dementia friendly?’ “By listening to people with dementia and learning from them,” was Gina Shaw’s pertinent answer. As the movement for more dementia-friendly communities grows at pace, Alzheimer’s Society ambassadors Gina Shaw and Chris Roberts take stock and reflect on what makes a community dementia-friendly – how can we evaluate this activity, and how can we support more communities to help people to live well with dementia.
