Dementia Action Week is an awareness raising campaign. Each year, the Alzheimer’s Society work with individuals and organisations across the UK to encourage people to ‘act on dementia’.
This year’s campaign will run from 16-22 May and focus on the theme of diagnosis. Research shows that the misconception around memory loss being a sign of normal ageing is the biggest barrier to people seeking a dementia diagnosis.
With diagnosis rates falling to a five-year low, Alzheimer’s Society want to encourage those who might be living with undiagnosed dementia to go to them for guidance and support and feel empowered to take the next step.
