Your answers will help improve care for people who live with dementia.

This is a short, anonymous and ongoing survey on behaviour, which takes 3 - 4 minutes to complete. Many people say it has made them think differently about the way people who live with dementia behave. You will be able to see the results immediately after you complete the survey by clicking "Done." 
If you have a problem seeing the survey, or some of the questions are cut off, please try changing your browser or using a different device. 

Thanks you for participating. I invite you to distribute this survey as widely as possible using any means you wish and to use it as a tool to change minds and create better dementia care .
