Dementia Action Week
This year, Dementia Awareness Week is changing to Dementia Action Week (21 to 27 May 2018). Raising awareness and offering support will always be important, but it’s time we all act to make change happen for people affected by dementia.
In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes, yet too many people feel excluded and face the disease alone. That’s why, this Dementia Action Week, Alzheimer's Society will be asking people to unite and take actions big and small to make a difference to the everyday lives of people with dementia. It could be as simple as being more patient in queues or helping make your business dementia-friendly.
Dementia United would love to hear from you about plans for Dementia Action Week 2018 so we can share this information with others to get involved and support where possible.
