World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September is part of World Alzheimer‘s Month. In 2020 we’re talking about dementia and urging everyone to join in the conversation by becoming #DementiaFriends or by showing support with a Payroll Giving donation.
This World Alzheimer’s Month, we are highlighting the importance of talking about dementia. We want to raise awareness of how it impacts the daily lives of people affected by the condition and challenge the stigma that surrounds it.
We know that receiving a dementia diagnosis can leave a person feeling very alone. We have also spoken to primary carers who feel isolated since their loved one received a diagnosis. But you are not alone — Alzheimer’s Society is here to support you.
Let’s shine a spotlight on dementia and highlight how taking the time to talk about dementia can have a huge impact for people affected by it.
