Using humour and good advice, a video featuring Canadian actor Eric Peterson encourages us to register as a Dementia Friend.
The Dementia Friends video and campaign encourages the empathy and humanity required when interacting with people with dementia.
Peterson (Corner Gas, Street Legal) explains the symptoms of dementia in the short video, allowing the viewer to learn a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia.
Peterson also speaks to the ways people can help people with dementia live a better life.
Dementia Friends Canada is a national awareness and public engagement initiative. The aim is to create a more aware and informed Canadian population to dispel myths and reduce stigma about dementia.
