Today is World Alzheimers Day (the whole of September is World Alzheimers Month). Marked around the globe, it’s a time to raise awareness of dementia and the impact a diagnosis can have – on the person diagnosed, their family, friends, colleagues and carers.
The theme for 2020 is ‘Let’s talk about dementia’ and with this in mind the Alzheimer’s Society say: ‘We’re encouraging everyone to start a conversation about dementia with those around them. We know it can be difficult, but talking about the condition reduces the stigma and fear that can surround it, and connects you with other people affected.
