Dementia Awareness Week 2016

Wednesday, 18 May, 2016

This year's Dementia Awareness Week, 15 – 21 May, will encourage people who are worried about dementia to confront their worries by addressing dementia directly and seeking information and support.  Dementia Awareness Week is from 30 May – 5 June in Scotland, and there's an awareness day in the USA on June 20.  Lots of websites have information and activities: here's our pick of the coverage.
