About this event
World Alzheimer's Month is observed in September every year. World Alzheimer's Month was launched in September 2012. The decision to introduce the full month, to contain the existing World Alzheimer's Day, was made to enable national and local Alzheimer associations worldwide to extend the reach of their awareness programmes over a longer period of time.
This year the Alzheimer’s Society are highlighting the importance of talking about dementia. They want to raise awareness of how it impacts the daily lives of people affected by the condition and challenge the stigma that surrounds it.
Let's shine a spotlight on dementia and highlight how taking the time to talk about dementia can have a huge impact for people affected by it.
Alzheimer’s Society has temporarily replaced face-to-face and group services with more online and telephone support, and new versions of some services.
Their directory is also listing online, telephone and some face-to-face services operated by third party providers. Please check directly with the provider to see if the service is running and if you have any questions about the safety measures they have in place.
If you have questions or concerns about dementia, you can get phone support from a dementia adviser by calling 0333 150 3456.
