Dementia can happen to anyone and there’s currently no cure.
A diagnosis of early stage dementia, mild cognitive impairment and memory loss concerns can be distressing for both an individual and family members. It can strip someone of their memory, their relationships and their connection to the world they love, leaving them feeling isolated and alone.
For family members who want to support an individual, it can be extremely distressing not knowing who to turn to or how to help.
Life doesn’t end when dementia begins, and we want to do everything we can to help people living with dementia hold onto their lives and the things they love for longer. We also believe it’s possible to do new things and have new experiences to adapt to living with dementia.
That’s what Dementia Awareness is all about.
We aim to raise awareness, educate people about dementia and tackle stigma so that people feel safe to access the support they need.
