14th to 20th May is Dementia Awareness Week

Dementia can happen to anyone and there's currently no cure. It can strip you of your memory, your relationships and your connection to the world you love, leaving you feeling isolated and alone.

There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, and by 2025 that figure will have risen to 1 million.

During the week of 14th to 20th May The Alzheimers Society are promoting Dementia Awareness week. 

This is a great chance for you to find out more about an illness which will affect more and more of the population over the next few decades, and to learn how you can help make a positive difference to the lives of people with dementia and those who care for them.

You can also take a look at this new video from the Alzheimers Society.
