20 people develop dementia every hour. By 2021, one million will be living with it. Dementia doesn’t discriminate, it hits families hard and currently there’s no cure. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer’s Society is here for everyone affected by dementia. Wherever they are, whatever they’re going through.
As the UK’s leading dementia charity, we work tirelessly to improve treatment and support. We’re creating a more dementia-friendly society so that people with dementia can live free of fear and prejudice. Through our ground-breaking research, we can and we will find a cure. Let’s take on dementia, together. Unite with us to fight dementia. And win.
