September 2014 marks the third global World Alzheimer’s Month™, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma.
Alzheimer associations around the world will focus their campaigns on advocacy and awareness with information provision, Memory Walks, media appearances and free memory screenings taking place across the globe.
The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month 2014 is “Dementia: Can we reduce the risk?” focusing on ways we may be able to help reduce our risk of developing dementia with brain healthy lifestyles. Find out more at http://www.alz.co.uk/world-alzheimers-month/about
As a Dementia Friends Champion, I (Deborah Wright) can run the one hour Dementia Friends information sessions which aim to raise awareness on Dementia. The Dementia Friends initiative aims to create dementia friendly communities by helping one million people in the community to understand dementia better and turn that understanding into action.
