In March, the Dementia: Understand Together team launched their “Dementia Inclusive Community” symbol which was developed together with people with dementia, carers, partners and champions and which connects all the many inclusive activities and services across the country and visually represents solidarity with people with dementia and their families.
The aim now is to ensure that the symbol is visible in our communities. We would like to encourage everyone is our communities to use the window stickers, badges and posters to send the important message to families, friends, visitors, members, colleagues and customers across the country that people with dementia are welcome and supported.
You can order all symbol materials free of charge from www.healthpromotion.ie, just select ‘Dementia’ from the drop down list to see the items available. We can also send out bulk orders of the guidance document, window sticker, badges and posters if you let us know how many items you need by emailing with your address and contact details to: email@example.com
Below are the following resources to download and use:
