SEPTEMBER IS ALZHEIMER’S MONTH

September 2019 is the 8th year

September 2019 will mark the eighth World Alzheimer’s Month™, an international campaign to raise awareness of dementia and challenge stigma. Alzheimer's is a slow progression of ill health.

This year’s campaign promotes the important messages that: ● Talking about dementia helps tackle the stigma, normalises language and encourages people to find our more information, advice and seek help ● People living with dementia and their carers have an equal right to respect and inclusion, and to diagnosis, quality care and treatment ● Governments can reduce the human and economic impact of dementia by developing responses to the World Health Organization (WHO) Global action plan on the public health response to dementia by 2025.
