Dementia Friends

The Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation launched their Dementia Friends programme in September 2015, offering awareness training to all groups, businesses and individuals. A number of companies and service providers signed up to the campaign at the launch, including hotels, beauty salons, Sri Lankan Airlines and Maradana Police station. During the programme’s first month, the Foundation welcomed the captain of the country’s cricket team as a Dementia Friends Champion. Upon completion of the training, all service providers are given a ‘We are dementia friendly’ sticker to display.
