Dementia Awareness Week is a national event that sees the UK public taking action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia.
In 2021, the Week will take place on 17 – 23 May.
One in three of us born in the UK today will go on to develop dementia in our lifetime, and there will be one million people living with dementia by 2025 making dementia care one of the greatest challenges facing our society. Today 34.5 million people know someone living with dementia.
