How will my one off donation help?
£50could pay for 312 people to access Talking Point, our online safe space, where a trouble shared can become a trouble halved. People accessing Talking Point can find other people in similar situations to them and share their experiences.
£100could pay for 15 Companion Calls from our team to people living with dementia, helping ease the loneliness that many people are experiencing. During lockdown we have already made over 30,000 of these calls, could you help us keep this up?
£150could turn 40 ordinary citizens into superhero Dementia Friends! There is a stigma attached to living with dementia that is hurtful and unfair, leading to many people with the condition feeling isolated and alone. Dementia Friends learn more about the condition and how to support those living with dementia better.
88 pence in every £1 of total expenditure was spent on direct costs towards improving the lives of people with dementia.
The remaining 12 pence in every £1 was spent to support our frontline activity including IT and premises.
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
