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.
The Dementia NI Empowerment Groups which run throughout Northern Ireland enable people with dementia to have a voice, remain active and part of their community.
Dementia NI members meet on a regular basis in suitable venues to offer each other support through friendly social gatherings and raise awareness about what it is like to live with the symptoms of dementia. The Empowerment Groups are organised by a member of staff who provides administrative support and organises visitors, who come along to meet the members and learn from them.
