In Ireland, over 11 people develop dementia every day.

Behind these numbers are mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, neighbours, workmates and friends. All are living with a brain condition that deeply affects both their lives and the lives of people who care for them. 

One aim of the Understand Together campaign is to inspire and encourage everyone to become involved in creating inclusive and supportive environments for people with dementia and their loved ones. We want to encourage individuals, businesses and other organisations to take small practical steps to help build compassionate communities that provide vital social support to those experiencing dementia. 

We can all make a difference ... where can you fit in?

Be dementia aware

Fear & stigma
surround dementia

People are often afraid to talk to those they know with dementa, and this can lead to a lot of unnecessary loneliness.

Friends, colleagues and neighbours can make a difference

Education and Resources

There are training programmes for carers, and for people working in various industries or jobs that could help to support people with dementia.
