Dementia Awareness Week running during 14-20 May is sponsored by the Alzheimer's Society who are asking everyone across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unite against dementia.
Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer. But awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone.
That's why, during the Week, they want everyone to come together and take action. By uniting, we can raise awareness, offer help and understanding, improve care and urgently ﬁnd a cure.
There are plenty of ways you can support the Week and everyone can play their part.
Please visit their website for more information
