What is it about?

ProMenz is the first supported self-help group by and for people with dementia in its first phases. “We accept our weaknesses and enhance our strengths. We learn to be careful and tolerant towards ourselves and others. For participation we need understanding and support.” ProMenz wants to encourage others to start self-help groups and campaigns in public for “persons with forgetfulness”.
