Get involved in Dementia Action Week 2019!

We are proud to support Dementia Action Week hosted by the Alzheimer's Society. This years theme is #AskUsAnything, encouraging everyone to start a conversation.


Alzheimer’s Society’s research shows that many people are worried about ‘saying the wrong thing’ to people living with dementia. And despite almost all of us knowing someone affected, two-thirds of people living with dementia report feeling isolated and lonely.

That’s why this Dementia Action Week, we’re supporting everyone to take action by starting a conversation with someone living with dementia they know; whether it’s calling a relative with dementia or visiting a neighbour, it’s time to start talking.


All it takes is a conversation to see we’re still us

A child sees the person for who they are. This Dementia Action Week, watch what happens when kids interview people with dementia.
