Dementia Action Week

DAW 2019

Thank you for making this Dementia Action Week our biggest yet

Dementia Action Week will be from 11-17 May 2020. The week unites people, workplaces, schools and communities to take action and improve the lives of people living with dementia.

Dementia Action Week 2020 will take place on Monday 11 - Sunday 17 May.

In 2019 we saw thousands of people take action across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to help people living with dementia in their communities. The main action in 2019 promoted everyone to start conversations with people living with dementia they know to reduce isolation and loneliness.

Alzheimer’s Society brought the Week to life with our #AskUsAnything film, showing kids interview people living with dementia to challenge misconception and show that people living with dementia, although have struggles, are still themselves and all you need to do is ask.
