This week marks Dementia Action Week (17 – 23 May 2021) – a national event led by Alzheimer’s Society which sees the public come together to improve the lives of people affected by dementia.

Dementia is a term used to describe a range of progressive conditions affecting the brain. There are over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today and of these, approximately 42,000 suffer with young onset dementia, which affects people under the age of 65.

It is estimated that the number of people living with the condition in the UK by 2025 will rise to over one million.

This is why we are committed to providing long-term support, care and housing for people with dementia now and in the future.

In this live forum, members of Alzheimer’s Society’s research team will give a comprehensive report on their latest investigations and findings, and let participants know how to take part in their work.

Topics will include:

  • Alzheimer’s Society’s research portfolio
  • Dementia prevention and risk reduction
  • Care and quality of life
  • What causes dementia
  • Participating in dementia research
