Project We Forgot – Reaching The Younger Community Online:
Dementia Awareness, Outreach and Support Young Caregivers

Many people still mistake dementia as a normal part of the ageing process and therefore do not see the necessity of helping to educate the young on dementia and understanding its impact on caregivers. This general lack of awareness results in young caregivers feeling alone and isolated as their peers at work or in school do not understand what they are going through.

Find out how Project We Forgot, a community focused on support for young caregivers and awareness of dementia among the younger generation, aims to reach the younger audience.
