How your money is helping people affected by dementia
From the moment someone starts worrying about their symptoms, Alzheimer's Society can be there for them. Your support means that people don't have to face this condition alone, and that together, we can build a better tomorrow for everyone affected by dementia.
Support from day one
Dementia Advisers provide critical support to people throughout their experiences with dementia. For both people living with the condition and their carers, dementia can be a complex maze, but thanks to you, they can access expert support over the phone or in person.
The depth and breadth of knowledge that our Dementia Advisers have means that everyone affected by dementia can have personalised support that truly meets their needs.
But the path to a better world for people with dementia doesn't end there.
Your support means that we can look to the future as well, investing in ground-breaking research into better ways of treating and caring for people with dementia. It also means that we can campaign for a more equitable society, with over 160,000 of you adding your voices to the call.
We're so grateful to the people who support us. For families affected by dementia, your donation makes all the difference in the world.
In the past 12 months, you have helped:
- 92,000 people access direct support. Whether this is over the phone or face-to-face, having someone there to help in the toughest times is invaluable to people affected by dementia.
- 1,500 people every week reach out to the Dementia Connect Support Line. Open seven days a week, the Support Line is there for anyone who is worried about dementia.
- 54,000 calls to combat loneliness through our Companion Calls which are fuelled by over 2,000 brilliant volunteers.
- Push the government to address the ongoing issues people in care homes and their families are facing. People with dementia make up 70% of care home residents, and we will continue to fight for their rights - you can join us by signing up as a campaigner.
