Dementia: Living together
In September 2012 ADI will mark the first World Alzheimer’s Month with awareness-raising activities across the world taking place over 30 days. World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September will play a key role in the month as the coordinated international effort reaches its peak.
The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month 2012 is ‘Dementia: Living together’.
Alzheimer associations across the world will focus their activities on reducing the stigma associated with dementia and making communities more dementia-friendly by offering a range of programmes and events. Activities will include educational seminars, workshops and enjoyable social events for people with dementia and their carers. Memory Walks will take place in numerous countries with communities gathering to show their commitment to remembering those who they have lost and creating a society where people with dementia and their families can live without the fear of discrimination.
