The group was jo<strong>in</strong>ed by avariety of volunteers <strong>in</strong>clud<strong>in</strong>g local home helpers, traditional folk s<strong>in</strong>gers,English conversation teachers and so <strong>for</strong>th, who were keen to promote abetter understand<strong>in</strong>g of dementia.‘Our aim is to go out <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> community and promote a better understand<strong>in</strong>gof dementia and its related issues through comical sketches. Such visualmeans, we believe, are far more effective than any lectures <strong>in</strong> help<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong>community be more aware of various issues related to dementia. Our motto“Let’s promote a better understand<strong>in</strong>g of dementia!” represents <strong>the</strong>three appeals we would like to make to <strong>the</strong> community. The first is to removeprejudice aga<strong>in</strong>st dementia by promot<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> idea that, when we relate to <strong>the</strong>mwell, elderly people with dementia are not much different from o<strong>the</strong>r elderlypeople except that <strong>the</strong>y have slightly unusual personalities. The second is tobr<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong>m out <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> community because <strong>the</strong>re are limits to <strong>the</strong> care that<strong>the</strong>ir own family alone can provide. And <strong>the</strong> third is to encourage people toconsider dementia as <strong>the</strong>ir own issue. The whole community will come to gripswith <strong>the</strong> issue of dementia when everyone seriously considers what it would belike if <strong>the</strong>y <strong>the</strong>mselves or <strong>the</strong>ir relatives have dementia.’
