Dementia Awareness Week is an important opportunity for us to help promote understanding of dementia and raise awareness of the Alzheimer’s Society and the vital support that they provide on both a national and local level. We hope that supporting this campaign will help to break down barriers, and assist people in our local area who may be worried about dementia to come forward and seek support.”
