Human Rights & People Living with Dementia

‘We have dementia, but we have the same human rights as everyone else.’

People with dementia have the same rights as others but can face barriers in having their rights respected & fulfilled.

As part of the Social Change Initiative, The Dementia Programme in Northern Ireland aimed to improve dementia care.

Dementia NI members helped set out a vision for a sustained role to shape policies & services that affect their lives and are calling for more involvement in designing the policies and services that affect them.

You may recognise a few familiar voices in the video.
