The Alzheimer's Society want to raise awareness of how it impacts the daily lives of people affected by the condition and challenge the stigma that surrounds it.

They know that receiving a dementia diagnosis can leave a person feeling very alone. They have also spoken to primary carers who feel isolated since their loved one received a diagnosis. But you are not alone — Alzheimer's Society is there to support you.

Let's shine a spotlight on dementia and highlight how taking the time to talk about dementia can have a huge impact for people affected by it.
