Over 50 million people are living with dementia worldwide. World Alzheimer’s Day, part of World Alzheimer’s Month, allows us to raise awareness and encourage dementia support for all those affected.
About Alzheimer’s Society
One in three of us born in the UK today will develop dementia in our lifetimes. It’s the biggest health and social care challenge we face. The scale and the need to prevent, diagnose, support those with dementia will only become greater.
Alzheimer’s Society are the leading UK charity funding research into the cause, treatment, and care of dementia. We’re working towards a world where dementia no longer devastates lives. We do this by giving expert advice and support to those living with dementia today, and providing hope for the future by campaigning to make dementia the priority it should be and funding groundbreaking research.
