Get involved this Dementia Action Week – 20th-26th May

Wednesday 22 May 2019

Over a third of people living with dementia feel lonely or have lost touch with their friends following their diagnosis.

With thousands of people living with dementia facing isolation, the theme for Dementia Action Week 2019 is inclusion. By coming together and taking action we can help people living with dementia to stay connected to the things they love for longer – you have a special part to play in helping us to achieve this goal.

This Dementia Action Week, Get Yourself Active is working with Alzheimer’s Society to ask all our volunteers to become Dementia Friends. There are over 2.9 million Dementia Friends in England and Wales, changing the way people think, act and talk about dementia.
