Dementia Action Week 17 to 21 May 2021
National Dementia Action Week was created by Alzheimer’s Society and takes place between 17 and 23 May. It is an annual opportunity to raise awareness about dementia, the impact it has on people’s lives and the actions we can all take to help people live well with dementia. As shops and services are starting to open up again Dementia Friendly Craven are using the week to remind people about how they can make their communities and organisations more dementia friendly and also provide information about where people can get help and advice.
Over 10,000 people are living with dementia in North Yorkshire and it’s important that we play our part in making our services and facilities and communities more Dementia Friendly and make sure people affected by dementia know where they can go to get help and advice.
