World Alzheimer's Day

September 2014 marks the third global World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma.

Alzheimer associations around the world will focus their campaigns on advocacy and awareness with information provision, Memory Walks, media appearances and free memory screenings taking place across the globe.

The theme for World Alzheimer's Month 2014 is ‘Dementia: Can we reduce the risk?', focusing on ways we may be able to help reduce our risk of developing dementia with brain healthy lifestyles.

World Alzheimer's Day is held on 21 September and you can find out more about the day and what you can do to take part here: www.alz.co.uk/world-alzheimers-month
