September is World Alzheimer’s Month
December 5, 2017

September marks the World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma around the world. Since 1994, Alzheimer associations across the globe commemorate 21 September as World Alzheimer’s Day. In September, all Alzheimer’s association around the world will mark the World Alzheimer’s Month with awareness-raising activities 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. World Alzheimer’s Month will offer Alzheimer associations the opportunity to reach more individuals and groups and increase their efforts to call for improved support services for people with dementia and their carers.

The theme for this years’ World Alzheimer’s Month is ‘Remember Me’, which aims to highlight the importance of early detection and diagnosis of dementia. It’s about remembering those affected by dementia, including many who may be worried about developing dementia themselves
