Local charity Dementia NI is a membership organisation specifically for people living with dementia. Dementia NI was incorporated as a company on the 15th January 2015 by five people living with dementia, who wanted to ensure that the voice of people living with dementia is at the core of policy, practice and service delivery across Northern Ireland. The charity has established Dementia Empowerment Groups throughout Northern Ireland to provide a place for people with dementia to come together, share experiences, reflect and provide peer support.
Dementia NI Empowerment Groups - Our members meet on a regular basis to offer each other support through their friendly social gatherings and raise awareness about what it is like to live with the symptoms of dementia. Members use their experiences and opinions to make a difference in the services and support provided to them, advise others how their individual needs can be met and how everyone can challenge the stigma of dementia.
