Let’s talk this dementia awareness week

Dementia Awareness Week is a national campaign to get people talking about dementia. Often people affected by dementia, their family and friends can find it difficult to talk, not knowing who to turn to and where to go for a sympathetic ear.

This year's awareness raising week coincides with the launch of our groundbreaking new dementia resource hub – The Lighthouse.
