Membership is only for people who have a diagnosis of dementia
Dementia NI groups meet in a safe secure environment – supported by staff and volunteers
It is an opportunity to meet and share your story with others in a similar situation and support each other.
People living with dementia are enabled to speak out and have your voices heard.
This may be an opportunity to use your existing skills and develop new skills
Coming to a group and participating in our work helps to re-build confidence quite often lost with a diagnosis of dementia
There are many opportunities to influence dementia care including getting a diagnosis and post-diagnosis support
By talking about your personal experiences you will be raising awareness about dementia and help to challenge the stigma surrounding a diagnosis.
