As a person with dementia, I have the same human rights as every Canadian as outlined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The following charter:
Makes sure people with dementia know their rights,
Empowers people with dementia to ensure their rights are protected and respected, and
Makes sure that people and organizations that support people with dementia know these rights.
It will take the effort of every Canadian to protect and respect the rights of people with dementia so that we are seen as valuable and vital community members.
