Dementia Awareness Week

This Dementia Awareness Week we're encouraging anyone who is worried about dementia to confront their concerns and get in touch with Alzheimer's Society.

Hundreds of thousands of families are touched by dementia every year and many people don't know where to turn. We know dementia can be scary but you don’t have to face it alone. 

If you're worried that you, or someone close to you, might have dementia, call our National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 1122 or email for advice and support.

If you're inspired by telling dementia what you think, we recommend this little book by Ian Donaghy. And, for each copy sold, Alzheimer's Society receives a 50p donation.
