Dementia Action Week 17th-23rd May 2021

“Dementia Action Week is a national event that sees the UK public taking action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. In 2021, the Week will take place on 17 – 23 May.

Stand up for your loved ones this Dementia Action Week.

Coronavirus has exposed the fact that families facing dementia have been failed by a social care system that is inadequate, hard to access, costly and unfair. People with dementia have been worst hit by the pandemic, accounting for a quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the UK.

The time has come for governments to set right decades of unfairness and underinvestment and to build a social care system we can all be proud of.” Please see following link for more information regarding Dementia Action Week: https://www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/dementia-action-awareness-week-2021/
