September – World Alzheimer’s Month

September – World Alzheimer’s Month

World Alzheimer’s Month is a global opportunity to raise awareness around, educate, encourage support of and demystify dementia. World Alzheimer’s Day takes place on 21 September as part of World Alzheimer’s Month.

The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month in September 2022 is ‘Know dementia, know Alzheimer’s’. This year it has a special focus on post-diagnosis support.

There’s a lot to think about after receiving a diagnosis of dementia. But you are not alone. The Alzheimer’s Society, among the charities, can help people adjust to a diagnosis and access support.

Your GP can also provide support by offering treatments, referrals, advice and information to manage the condition and live well with dementia.

The APC Access for All Working Party want to support everyone in the community to the best of its ability, whether that be through sign posting, sharing information or just hear what we can do to make our community a better, more accepting and accessible place to live.

Please contact Cllr Clare Diskin Cllr.Clare.Diskin@aldenham-pc.gov.uk – we want to hear ALL your ideas.
