#DoSomethingNew for Dementia Awareness Week

#DoSomethingNew

Because we believe that life doesn't end when dementia begins, and that having dementia doesn't mean stopping doing the things you love and trying new things, we're encouraging all our supporters to #DoSomethingNew this Dementia Awareness Week.

Be inspired by Ken, Margaret and Ian to take the first steps towards fulfilling a long-held dream or ambition, or do something simple like trying a new dish from your favourite takeaway.
