Fellow humans. Even with dementia.
How can we deal with dementia now and how should we deal with it in future? This is an important question that concerns us all because dementia, both now and in future, is a subject that affects more and more people.
In a situation that is very hard for everyone concerned, those directly affected and their families often experience the same thing. People with dementia are considered “difficult” and suddenly no longer belong. We often do not understand the change in their behaviour. We feel uncomfortable with them and we usually do not have the courage to face sufferers openly and to communicate with them.
We want to raise awareness of this problem with our Campaign Fellow humans. Even with dementia. It is really quite a natural idea. It emphasises similarities and not differences. Togetherness instead of mere coexistence. The aim is more communication and less fear of contact on as many levels as possible.
We want to show that people with dementia are people with their own needs, wishes and ideas – like you and me. “They have their heart in the right place”, “They can move mountains” and “They have something to say”.
A stamp to raise awareness
With our Campaign, we want to invite people to take part in a dialogue and to put the subject of dementia at the heart of society, where it belongs. This is why we have put ourselves right at the heart of things with our Campaign and our motto.
Join the Campaign. Add your voice so that people with dementia can share in life and lead a life that is as self-reliant as possible.
