Words of Strength

People, passion, purpose, impact


To reduce the scale of dementia, we need to increase public awareness to promote dementia-friendly communities and invest in the capacity-building of health and social care workers globally.


Sally spearheads dementia awareness campaigns in Ghana to help combat stigma and promote early diagnosis. She trains caregivers on dignified dementia care and coordinates a nationwide support group for those affected.


Sally hopes to develop a comprehensive training module for dementia diagnosis and care, tailored for primary care physicians and community mental health nurses in resource-deprived areas of Ghana, that is adaptable to other low- and middle-income countries.


Dementia remains highly stigmatized and overlooked in Ghana. By creating awareness to reduce stigma Sally hopes to work towards building dementia-friendly communities in Ghana and improving access to the necessary care, especially in rural areas.
