A third of young people know someone with dementia. With over two million people developing dementia in the next ten years, it's likely the majority of today's young people will know someone affected by the condition in their lifetime. Our video: [video=youtube;N9e3ra3uvik]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9e3ra3uvik[/video] Why does this matter? By educating young people about dementia we can create a dementia-friendly generation. Young people will have increased confidence and understanding when communicating with people with dementia, helping to reduce social isolation and stigma for those living with dementia. As well as the positive impact on people living with dementia today, increasing young people's understanding of dementia will have long term benefits as they approach adulthood and become the carers, social workers, researchers, employers and adults of tomorrow. Their understanding will create dementia-friendly communities, helping people to live well with dementia.
