Dementia Action Week takes place this week (20 – 26 May 2019), and is a national campaign to unite people, workplaces, schools and communities to take action and improve the lives of the 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK.
This year Dementia Action Week will focus on inclusion. Living with dementia doesn’t need to mean an isolated life – after all, people with dementia are still people. This Dementia Action Week, urge everyone to unite with us and take action – so people living with dementia can stay connected to the things they love for longer.
To find out more, pick up a leaflet from our information stand in Greynore restaurant, on our Eastbourne campus, all this week.
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about the condition. Join our Dementia Friend’s Information Session and learn more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
