Dementia in rural Wales

People affected by dementia in rural Wales deserve a new deal. Help us campaign by uniting with us.

The Challenges

Over 17,000 people affected by dementia live in rural Wales, yet they face barriers and challenges to accessing specialist support. This is not good enough. 

'There is not respite available here - no one comes this far.'

That's why Alzheimer's Society Cymru wants a new deal for people living in rural Wales, improving:

  • access to specialist support

  • peer support

  • awareness and understanding of dementia

Read our full 'Dementia in rural wales: The lived experiences' report for more information.

Also available in welsh - 'Dementia yn y Gymru: Wledig Profiadau bywyd.'
