19 May 14 It`s Dementia Awareness Week - don`t bottle it up
 

This week (19th-23rd May) is Dementia Awareness Week, coordinated by the Alzheimer's Society – a membership organisation which works to improve the quality of life for people affected by dementia across the country.

 Dementia is one of the biggest health and care challenges of our time. Across the UK, 800,000 people have dementia. This number is set to double in the next 40 years.

This Dementia Awareness Week, the Alzheimer's Society is encouraging people with who may be worried about dementia to talk about it. Whether you may be worried that yourself, a friend or family member, has dementia; it can be difficult to talk about. You may feel scared, confused, ashamed or alone. 38% of people with dementia feel lonely; 62% of people living alone feel lonely. You may also be hoping that the problem will go away, so that you don't have to deal with it.  

This week, we will be posting how The Wrekin Housing Group, Staffordshire County Council and Galliford Try are working together to help improve the lives of everyone affected by the disease.
