We’re proud to be participating in Dementia Action Week next week. Our Remind Portsmouth dementia service is working in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society to run a variety of activities during the week.
Previously known as Dementia Awareness Week, Dementia Action Week takes place between the 21st and the 27th of May. The goal of Dementia Action Week is to encourage people to take action to improve the lives of those affected by dementia, working to create a dementia-friendly UK where those with dementia do not feel excluded.
There are 850,000 people in the UK who are affected by dementia, and it does not just affect the elderly, 40,000 people in the UK under the age of 65 suffer from early onset dementia. It is believed that by 2051 the number of people who have dementia in the UK will have risen to 2 million.
