Dementia Action Week

Did you know that dementia isn’t just being a bit forgetful?

People living with dementia are regularly told they ‘don’t look like they have dementia’ because they don’t present, speak, or act in a way the community expects.

What people can’t see they don’t understand and what they don’t understand they tend to avoid.

This week is Dementia Action Week and one of our tips to support people impacted by dementia is to raise your awareness.

Start by educating yourself on dementia so you can understand the experience of someone living with dementia in your life.
