About this session

Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. Alzheimer’s Society is facing dementia head on.

Too many people face dementia alone. People with dementia have told us how difficult it is to find out who to turn to or where to go for information and support. Our support services ensure nobody should have to face dementia alone. Alzheimer’s Society help people affected by dementia find the right support, advice and information, at the right time.

This one hour session will educate participants on what dementia is, different types of dementia and signs and symptoms, as well as raising awareness of how participants can reduce their own risk. The session will finish by linking participants in with local services and highlighting a step by step approach to becoming dementia friendly within your own organisation.
