18 May 2015
This week (17-23 May) is Dementia Awareness Week and I am pleased to be showing my support for people living with dementia.
There are currently 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and a further 670,000 full time carers. By the end of this parliament there will be 1 million people living with the condition.
The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity, providing information, advice and practical and emotional support – through their website, online forum, helpline and 3,000 services in communities across the country.
