Today is World Alzheimer’s Day. It’s an opportunity for organisations and individuals around the world to raise awareness, highlight issues faced by people affected by dementia and demonstrate how we can overcome them to help people live well with dementia.
Globally, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face, with nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide. To tackle this global dementia challenge we need to work together, and to collaborate and share best practice with one another.
This is why the Alzheimer’s Society has committed to work with partners on global research and campaigning, to share our learning, best practice and experience with one another, to share Dementia Friends as a global movement, and to forge partnerships as part of the Global Alzheimer’s & Dementia Action Alliance.
Dementia is something that we see on a daily basis at CuraCare. We work with many people with different forms of dementia, always aiming to make their lives better in whatever way we can, as well as helping family members to deal effectively with the changes they see in their loved one. As such, we are fully behind all the great work that the Alzheimer’s Society does and we wish them well in all their endeavours today!
