Dementia Awareness Week 2015 takes place between 17-23 May 2015.
The Dementia Friends programme from the Alzheimer’s Society has already achieved great success with over 1 million Dementia Friends signed up since launch. The purpose of the initiative is to change people’s perceptions of dementia by encouraging them to learn more about dementia and small ways we can all help, becoming a Dementia Friend and turning understanding into action.
The Alzheimer’s Society believe that life doesn’t end when dementia begins and that having dementia shouldn’t stop you from doing the things you love. This week they are encouraging their supporters to #DoSomethingNew this Dementia Awareness Week. Find out how you can take part here:
