Alzheimer’s is a disease and diseases can be cured

Let’s Make Breakthroughs Possible

Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of dementia, and it’s a disease that no-one has yet survived.

But Alzheimer’s and other dementias are physical diseases and with your support, medical research can prevent, treat and one day, cure them.

We believe it’s possible – do you?

Time
for change

1 in 5 people in the UK mistakenly believes that dementia is just an inevitable part of getting older.

Dementia is caused by physical diseases, like Alzheimer’s. If diseases like cancer and HIV can be treated then so can the diseases behind dementia.

If we start to think differently about dementia, and challenge others to join us, we can begin to realise the incredible breakthroughs that are possible through research.

And together, we can make them happen.
