World Alzheimer’s Month is the international campaign by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. World Alzheimer’s Month was launched in 2012. World Alzheimer’s Day is on 21 September each year.
2 out of every 3 people globally believe there is little or no understanding of dementia in their countries. The impact of World Alzheimer’s Month is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action.
World Alzheimer’s Month is a time to recognise the impact of dementia but also to act to support those affected globally. The Bromley Dementia Support Hub provide support and advice for people diagnosed with dementia, and their carers in the Bromley borough. Visit bromleydementiasupporthub.org.uk to find out more.
