September is World Alzheimer’s Month

World Alzheimer’s Month is a global opportunity to raise awareness around, educate, encourage support of and demystify dementia. This year’s theme, ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s,’ continues on from the 2021 campaign, which focused on diagnosis, the warning signs of dementia, the continued effect of COVID-19 on the global dementia community and more.  
 
In 2022, the campaign has a focus on post-diagnosis support. Following recent developments in both dementia treatment and support, the campaign will aim to highlight the importance of support for people living with dementia and families following a diagnosis.  

Learn more about the month here, and here.

You can also download the publications catalogue here, which contains information for people diagnosed with dementia, carers, and information about support services and resources.

World Alzheimer’s Day takes place during World Alzheimer’s Month and is on 21 September every year.
