Alzheimer’s Society is asking everyone across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unite against dementia. Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer. But awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone.
There are plenty of ways we can support the Week and everyone can play their part. At BakerLaw, Debbie Duggan, Head of our Private Client Department is contributing in the community and also presenting a Dementia Friends Awareness session in our Farnham office. By uniting, we can raise awareness, offer help and understanding, improve care and urgently ﬁnd a cure.
Also, the Farnham Dementia Action Alliance has arranged a week of activities, which are aimed at people living with dementia and those who want to find out more information about dementia (http://www.farnham.gov.uk/farnham-life/local-matters/farnham-dementia-action-alliance/news-and-events)
Let’s get behind Dementia Awareness Week and make sure nobody faces dementia alone.
