Hidden Voices, Hidden Impact, Hidden Cost: Let's Talk About Dementia.

Reflecting on the devastating impact, and true experience, of coronavirus on the dementia community, this Dementia Awareness Week we will be exploring 'Hidden voices, Hidden impact, Hidden cost'.

So, let’s talk about dementia. Each day our blogs, podcasts, and articles will be uploaded at 9am so check back regularly. 

 

Our Forget-Me-Not Pledge

Everyone can make a difference, no matter how much or how little time you can spare. From committing to learning a little bit more about dementia, to sharing your own lived experience, every action counts. This Dementia Awareness Week, we ask you to pledge to make a difference using our Forget-Me-Not template or simply colour it in and display in your window to show your support.

Share your pledge with us on social media using #DementiaAwareness.
