We're proud to be supporting Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Awareness Week 2015.
Our Chief Executive Bruce Moore said: “Dementia represents a significant and growing challenge for all of us involved in social care and housing.
“Alzheimer’s Society’s message for Dementia Awareness Week is that life does not end when dementia begins. We share their aim for people living with dementia to hold onto their lives and the things they love for longer. We provide housing, care and support services designed to help them maintain their independence and choice for as long as they are able.”
A spokesperson for the Alzheimer’s Society said: “Dementia can happen to anyone and there's currently no cure. It can strip you of your memory, your relationships and your connection to the world you love, leaving you feeling isolated and alone.
“At Alzheimer's Society, we believe that life doesn't end when dementia begins, and we do everything we can to help people living with dementia hold onto their lives and the things they love for longer.”
To support Dementia Awareness Week, people are being asked to do something new and share it on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtags #DoSomethingNew and #DAW2015, to spread the word that life doesn’t end when dementia begins.
