World Alzheimer’s Month – Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s

September is World Alzheimer’s Month, and includes World Alzheimers Day on September 21st.  The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month in 2021 is ‘Know dementia, know Alzheimer’s’.

Alzheimer’s Society UK say “This year we are talking about the power of knowledge. By learning more about dementia and understanding changes in memory and behaviour, you and your loved ones can feel empowered to reach out for the help and support you need.

This month, we’re encouraging everyone to know the signs and symptoms of dementia so they can get the right diagnosis and support as quickly as possible.”

There is lots of information on the Alzheimer’s Society website: including publications that you can download or order paper copies if you prefer.
