Alzheimer’s Society

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK and this number is set to rise to one million by 2021.

With the right support, people can live well with dementia throughout the condition. More people affected by dementia turn for help to Alzheimer’s Society than to any other charity.

• carers’ support;
• peer support;
• dementia cafes;
• Singing for the Brain;
• befriending for people with dementia and carers; and
• day support.

If you are affected by dementia, we’re here to help.
