World Alzheimer’s Day 2021

Tuesday 21st September is World Alzheimer’s Day – An international campaign to raise awareness of the issues faced by people affected with dementia. It takes place every year on the 21st September and it is the focus of World Alzheimer’s Month during the month of September. The theme for this year’s World Alzheimer’s Month is ‘Know dementia, know Alzheimer’s’. 

World Alzheimer’s Day was created to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia, with Alzheimer’s being the most common form of dementia. Globally, nearly 50 million people are living with dementia worldwide. 

Covid-19 has made it extremely difficult to host any events to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s and dementia for well over a year, but Alzheimer’s Society provides a lot of useful and practical information, including highlighting the symptoms of dementia

At Abicare, we know how frightening and overwhelming it can be for someone suffering from dementia and the impact it has on their loved ones. Alzheimer’s and dementia affects people in different ways, which is why our specialist carers can provide the support and care that you need, based on your personal tailor made care plan.
