At Alzheimer’s Society, we believe everyone affected by dementia has the right to live their life the way they want to live it whether living with the diagnosis of dementia or supporting someone who is. Core to that belief is that everyone has the right to be the person they are, to live without fear or prejudice regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, faith and belief, or a disability, like dementia. We aim to encourage everyone to make a full contribution to society the way they want to make it and live in a world that demonstrates respect and values diversity.
