Take a look at this film where we see Mary, who has dementia, encounter people in her community. It demonstrates how a little bit of time and consideration can make all the difference to the daily lives of people with dementia. The film aims to encourage small businesses and organisations take steps towards becoming dementia friendly.

Each person experiences dementia in their own way, but it can be helpful to think of the way the condition progresses as a series of stages. Take a look at our factsheet which outlines the characteristics of early-, middle- and late-stage Alzheimer's disease and briefly looks at how other forms of dementia progress. http://bit.ly/1dHSFzx
