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!
This section of the TOOL KIT focuses on how people with dementia can be supported as advocates, educators, and leaders in changing others' perceptions about people with dementia.
