Organisation:Aktion Demenz Voralberg – Gesellschaft für Gesundheit und Pflege – gGmbH
Project description:Campaign Dementia aims to create conditions in Vorarlberg that enable people with dementia to participate in public and social life. We support communities that wish to create a friendlier environment for people with dementia and their families. 23 model communities (out of 96, and almost 60% of the inhabitants of Vorarlberg) have joined us since 2008. Countrywide, we also want to sensitize the general public and increase awareness of dementia by informing (e.g. through press relations and conferences, brochures, events, movies, art exhibitions, lessons in schools and kindergarten) and educating (e.g. neighbourhood assistants, policemen, salespeople, bus drivers, bank employees).
