Alzheimer’s Society Sefton wants people to become more dementia aware and find out about the services they provide in Sefton so, whether you currently live with dementia or want to find out more about this condition, these events are for you.
A spokesperson from Alzheimer’s Society Sefton says: “There are so many myths and misunderstandings about dementia and it is often portrayed very negatively. Alzheimer’s Society Sefton can inform you of the facts rather than the fiction and explain that it is possible to live well with dementia.
“The aim of Dementia Action Week this year is to take some real action, big or small to improve the lives of people living with dementia. You may want to set up a display board, information stand, take part in a fundraising quiz or become a Dementia Friend.
“Our Head Office has lots of resources to help you with whatever you decide to do including posters booklets and quiz details. Click on this link alzheimers.org.uk/DAW to register and order the specific DAW resources you need.”
