It's not called getting old, it's called getting ill.

Forgetting things from time to time is usually normal. But if memory loss is affecting your daily life, it's a good idea to seek help.

It's Dementia Action Week 2022

This Dementia Action Week (16–22 May), we want you to take action if you are worried about memory loss. A timely diagnosis can help you make important decisions about treatment, support and care. Three out of five people with dementia wish they had got a diagnosis sooner.

We are Alzheimer's Society, a leading dementia charity in the UK, and we are here to help.
