Dementia Action Week is a nationwide movement that inspires people to take action to help people with dementia live better lives.
One in every three people born in the UK today will experience dementia over their lifetime, and one million people will be living with dementia by 2025, making dementia treatment one of the most pressing issues facing our society.
Abuse can occur anywhere, including at home and in care settings. People with dementia are especially vulnerable because the disease may prevent them from reporting the abuse or recognizing it. They also may fall prey to strangers who take advantage of their cognitive impairment.
Dementia Action Week is all about us all playing our part in making the UK a dementia-friendly place to live.
