By 2021 there will be more than a million people living with dementia in the UK, not to mention the families and carers who will also be affected. Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity. We exist to champion the rights of everyone with dementia and those who care for them . We also fund innovative research in the areas of cause, cure, care and prevention. There are currently 800,000 people in the UK living with dementia. Dementia can happen to anyone and there is currently no cure. But with the right support, people can live well with dementia. If you would like to donate you can do so here.
