TAKING ACTION AGAINST STIGMA AND DISCRIMINATION ASSOCIATED WITH DEMENTIA
A diagnosis of dementia can increase a person’s sense of vulnerability. Not only are people faced with challenging cognitive changes but too often many also face needless stigma and discrimination that can make the experience worse.
As such, the discrimination caused by stigma that accompanies a diagnosis of dementia needs to be “flipped on its ear!”
The purpose of this toolkit is to recognize and respond to this stigma and discrimination. It has been designed by people with dementia to help others – including other people living with dementia, the people who support them, and those who do research – to address the challenges of stigma and discrimination.
While you can enter the site in any way you choose, we have tried to make the information as relevant to each group as possible.
