Globally, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face, with nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide.
World Alzheimer's Month is a global opportunity to raise awareness around, educate, encourage support of and demystify dementia.
World Alzheimer's Day is an international campaign to raise awareness and highlight issues faced by people affected by dementia. It is an opportunity for people and organisations to demonstrate how we can overcome these issues and help people live well with dementia.
World Alzheimer’s Day takes place every year on 21 September. It is the focus of World Alzheimer's Month during the month of September.
Alzheimer's Society has a full list of publications and resources that you can download or order here.
To support this work, and help raise awareness of dementia we have pulled together this small collection of fiction which feature characters with dementia.
