People living with dementia need your help
The pandemic has taken a disproportionate toll on people living with dementia. One in every four UK coronavirus deaths has been somebody who had dementia. Plus, without their routines or social interaction, the health of many more people has deteriorated quickly. With your support, Alzheimer’s Society will be there to put a virtual arm around the shoulders of people with dementia and reassure them they are not alone.- Kate Lee, CEO
