In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes and almost everyone knows someone whose life has been affected. Yet too many people with dementia feel excluded and face the disease alone.

Everyday things like going to the shops, travelling and carrying on with social activities become impossible when people around you don’t know how to interact or the small things they can do to help. To support Dementia Week, the Alzheimer’s Society is calling on people to take actions big and small that collectively will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by dementia.

This Dementia Action Week, find out what action you can take at:

‘Taking Action against Dementia’

Organised by

Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Alzheimers Society

Date: Friday 25th May

Time: 10.30am-1.30pm

Place:  The Fitzwilliam’s Centre, Beaconsfield, HP9 2JW

During the event, people with a diagnosis of dementia will be talking about actions that they would like others to take.
