EDUCATION & ADVOCACY

To advocate is to educate.  

 Making change can be as simple as having a conversation with a friend, colleague or with a local grocer.   But advocacy could also be through more formal communications like a letter writing campaign, meeting with your local politician, or giving a presentation.  

Any action or communication that is geared toward changing how others understand and respond to those with dementia is advocacy!

With dementia-related publications, so much is changing because more and more information is coming out. As more and more people understand dementia and delivering person-entered care and books, policies get revised and part of that credit for revision comes to our own community, people living with dementia and caregivers who in some cases influence the change of policy.
