As the population ages rapidly, the incidence of dementia is expected to increase.  In 2014, there were 5 million people in the U.S. with Alzheimer’s or dementia.  The CDC estimates that by 2060, that number will grow to 13.9 million.  In the U.S., someone develops the disease every 65 seconds.  As a Dementia Friends Champion, you can help make life easier for those living with the disease.

A Dementia Friend Information Session is a one-hour event with friends, family, colleagues and the wider community that covers the five key messages everyone should know about dementia.
