Alzheimer's Society (Full member)
Alzheimer's Society is the UK 's leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers.
Dementia affects over 850,000 people in the UK and that number is to rise to one million by 2021.
The Society provides information and support to people with any form of dementia and their carers through our publications, National Dementia Helpline, website and around 3,000 local services throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
We support health and social care professionals by delivering high quality education, resources and training. We influence politicians and policy-makers, and campaign for better quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers and greater understanding of dementia.
We also fund innovative research in the areas of cause, cure, care and prevention. We work with scientists and people affected by dementia to ensure that the medical and social research programmes we fund have a positive impact on people's lives.
If you have any concerns about Alzheimer's disease or any other form of dementia, visit alzheimers.org.uk or call the Alzheimer's Society National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 11 22. (Interpreters are available in any language. Calls may be recorded or monitored for training and evaluation purposes.)
