Dementia Action Week

National Dementia Action Week will take place from 20-26 May.

This year’s theme is inclusion. Over a third of people living with dementia have reported to the Alzheimer’s Society that they have felt lonely recently, and over a third have lost touch with their friends following a diagnosis.

Organisations such as Plymouth City Council, Drake Circus, Moments Cafe and Community Hub and Plymouth Citybus are taking part in events throughout the week to raise awareness of dementia, and to encourage individuals and organisations to take action that will make life better for people affected by dementia.
