Dementia Awareness Week
Dementia can happen to anyone and there's currently no cure. It can strip you of your memory, your relationships and your connection to the world you love, leaving you feeling isolated and alone.
At Alzheimer's Society, we believe that life doesn't end when dementia begins, and we do everything we can to help people living with dementia hold onto their lives and the things they love for longer. We also believe it's possible to do new things and have new experiences, too. And that's what this year's Dementia Awareness Week was all about.
Dementia Awareness Week 2015 took place 17-23 May, and was a great success with people everywhere getting involved and doing their bit to help raise awareness and understanding of dementia. Take a look at our highlights from the week.
