Blue Wave

Launched in September 2015 by the Turkish Alzheimer Association, a pilot project following in the footsteps of Dementia Friends programmes aims to raise awareness of dementia within the country’s population. Named Blue Wave in the hope that it will spread across the country like a wave, a number of face-to-face education sessions have already begun with those attending receiving a blue Alzheimer Friend bracelet. An online version of the programme is currently in development.
