Our vision is to enhance the dignity of people living with dementia and their caregivers so that they can live a positive and normal a life as possible. Our mission is to introduce practical, easy to use, effective approaches that can be used by family carers and others to improve their wellbeing and the wellbeing of those with dementia.

“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did.
But people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
Watch Dignity In Dementia’s Film – “What Do You See Now?”
“My yesterdays are disappearing, and my tomorrows are uncertain, so what do I live for? I live for each day. I live in the moment. Just because I’ll forget what I’ve done in that moment and I will forget today, doesn’t mean that today doesn’t matter.” – Alice, ‘Just Alice’
