World Dementia Awareness Month
September is World Dementia Awareness Month. From 2012, national Alzheimer associations, people with dementia and advocates across the world will join together by raising awareness of dementia in their own country throughout September. A range of activities will take place in all regions of the world, with events such as Memory Walks, awareness-raising concerts, enjoyable events for people with dementia and their carers, and informative sessions both for the general public and for health care professionals.
World Dementia Awareness Month has developed, due to popular demand, out of World Alzheimer’s Day, which takes place every year on 21 September.
