I just had an idea, probably one that has already been done, so excuse me if I am unoriginal but... How about if people who are affected by dementias wear a pin on forget me not flower, so that people will stop and comment on it and then this opens an opportunity to speak out about dementias, will show the number of people affected, will bring more awareness, will allow us to speak out about what dementia really is and how important it is that more research is done and better care facilities provided, etc. I don't suggest to make this just a one day a year thing for fund raising as then everyone wears it just to show that they care but doesn't do any more than that. Instead it could be used like a symbol of mourning, not only about the toll dementias have on our loved ones and us, but mourning for the lack of a cure, the lack of awareness, understanding, action etc. Naturally not everyone would want to wear one because sometimes you just don't want people to ask.... It was just a thought, does anyone know if this is already done?
