Title: UK’s Dementia Awareness Week Spreads Across the World


1
UKs Dementia Awareness Week Spreads Across the
World
  • Every year the United Kingdom holds a Dementia
    Awareness Week and this years starts on May
    14th. The Dementia Awareness Week has spread from
    the UK to across the world in hopes to spread
    dementia awareness and support.

2
  • Dementia AwarenessDuring this week, the UK urges
    residents to unite and come together against
    dementia by spreading awareness. The event is
    held by the Alzheimers Society, which is a
    charity that offers dementia research and support
    to patients and their families. Over 800,000
    people have dementia in the UK alone and many do
    not even know it. Dementia is starting to be
    considered the top killer in the 21st century
    because it is growing at an alarming rate.

  • A lot of people dont even know they have
    dementia. The week promotes awareness so people
    can be diagnosed at an earlier rate and help them
    as dementia progresses. In Arizona, SMART Brain
    Aging can offer help with their clinics and Brain
    U Online program.

  • First, we must understand dementia and the early
    warning signs that comes with it. The World
    Health Organization describes dementia as a
    syndrome where there is deterioration in memory,
    thinking, behavior and the ability to perform
    everyday activities. Memory loss is the most
    common sign. If you start forgetting newly
    learned information or if you have complications
    performing familiar tasks, like driving to a
    location that you usually drive to, you might be
    experiencing early signs of dementia. Other signs
    include misplacing things and putting them in odd
    locations. Some people even start to withdrawal
    from social activities and hobbies.

5
  • The Alzheimers Association has a helpful list of
    other signs to look out for. Symptoms progress at
    different rates for everyone, but people can live
    a full and happy life, even with just a little
    bit of assistance.

6
  • People are more than just dementia. Sometimes
    it gets so bad that patients are unable to
    communicate. So ever year there is a theme
    during Dementia Awareness Week. Remember the
    Person is designed to remember the person behind
    dementia. Offering support and care for those
    suffering with dementia is important. It isnt an
    easy thing to go through, but there are resources
    that can help. This week promotes those resources
    and helps the public understand dementia.

7
  • Many fundraising events around the UK will take
    place and there are even some that will take
    place across the world. This is a great time to
    raise awareness and also to raise money for the
    patients and families affected by dementia.
    Anyone can help by giving information, advice or
    just by showing support.
  • Also kicking off this week is the Dementia
    Societys Step2Raise. Join Team Brain U today!
