Breaking down the barriers: It's Dementia Awareness Week 15-21 May 2016



Bluebird Care Trafford is supporting Dementia Awareness Week 2016, an annual campaign run by the Alzheimer’s Society from 15– 21 May 2016.

The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, supporting people living with any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The charity provides information and support, funds medical research, and campaigns for better quality of life for people with dementia and greater general understanding of the condition.

The campaign runs from 15– 21 May 2016 and aims to encourage people worried about dementia to confront their concerns by addressing dementia directly and coming to Alzheimer's Society for information and support.

Bluebird Care Trafford is delighted to promote Dementia Awareness Week 2016. Ian Helsby of Bluebird Care Trafford says.
“Dementia Awareness Week is an opportunity for us to help promote understanding of dementia, raise awareness of the Alzheimer’s Society, and spread the word about the vital support they provide on a national and local level. We hope supporting this campaign will help to break down barriers, and help people in our local area who may be worried about dementia to come forward and seek support.”
