Make a difference this Dementia Action Week
15-21 May

No action is too small to make a difference

Anyone who’s witnessed the devastation of dementia understands the urgent need for a cure. Unless we act, one in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime.

But dementia is caused by physical diseases, and diseases can be cured.

And you’ll be surprised – no action is too small to help change lives.
