WHAT IS THE DEMENTIA PEER COALITION (DPC)?

A group of resilient people living well with the changes attributed to various forms of dementia who are joining together into a national and local peer coalition.  We are an independent voice of people living with dementia banded into a group run by and for people with dementia.  The DPC creates opportunities for peers living with dementia to support and empower one another in four areas:  peer support, advocacy, community education, and research

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

Empowerment, Equality, Inclusion, Access, Resilience, Meaning, Purpose
