Throughout the 30th Alzheimer’s Disease International Conference, held in Perth in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Australia, delegates were asked a series of questions and their responses were captured in these short video clips.
“People with dementia do have abilities and they have a right to engage in normal everyday activities. They have a right to have a life, a full-life” – ADI 2015
The questions included: what they were looking forward to at the conference; what dementia meant to them, and what could be done to make communities more dementia-friendly. Inclusivity, respect and the right for people to live a full and happy life with dementia, where society sees and recognises the person and not the disease were some of the responses delegates gave.
