We are commited to spreading the message that leading a healthy lifestyle and being socially active can protect brain health and help reduce the risk of dementia.
Raising awareness of dementia, and fighting the fear and stigma that still surrounds the condition is so important. We are helping Alzheimer's Research UK in their mission to make breakthroughs possible that will keep people connected to their families, their worlds and themselves for longer.
Dementia is our greatest health challenge. One in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime unless we bring about life-changing preventions and treatments.
The condition doesn’t just affect memory, it can also affect a person’s ability to walk, communicate and even swallow. It is the leading cause of death in the UK.
Today, there are no effective treatments to slow, stop or prevent diseases that cause dementia, such as Alzheimer’s. But thanks to our amazing supporters, there are now more researchers than ever working to change that and Alzheimer’s Research UK is spearheading efforts to translate promising discoveries in the laboratory into treatments for the future.
We believe in making breakthroughs to bring about a world free from dementia, and that’s where you come in. Sign up to an event for Alzheimer’s Research UK today, because hope starts with you.
