Dementia diagnosis rates have stagnated, but many are facing dementia alone, without access to the vital support that a diagnosis can bring.
The Alzheimer’s Society, which runs Dementia Action Week is encouraging individuals and their families to seek a timely diagnosis and avoid reaching crisis point.
They recognise that; “Getting a diagnosis can be daunting, but we believe it’s better to know. And so do 91% of people living with dementia.“
And they are encouraging people to take their helpful test here
Guarding against dementia and supporting those who need it is something we can all do.
Dementia affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Educating ourselves about signs, symptoms, and risk factors is the first step.
Small acts of kindness create a supportive environment for those with dementia. And adopting a brain-healthy lifestyle can help reduce the risk of dementia.
Let’s raise awareness, foster understanding, and embrace individuals with love and dignity.
