National Dementia Carers Day 2019 is fast approaching and Fambridge Care would like to show our support and help raise awareness about the importance of society’s ‘hidden’ Carers.
National Dementia Carers’ Day, part of World Alzheimer’s Month, will take place this year on September 8th 2019 and recognises and celebrates informal Dementia Carers, while highlighting what it means to be a Carer.
The focus of National Dementia Carers Day is to spread awareness and show support for all those Carers by offering help and advice.
National Dementia Carers Day is now in its fifth year and support organisations, charities and community groups are being urged to get behind the campaign by spreading awareness and helping to signpost sources of advice and support using #NDCD19.
The day is part of World Alzheimer’s Month, which will highlight the importance of early detection and diagnosis of Dementia.
According to the Alzheimer’s Society, there are currently 850,000 people with Dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to more than one million by 2025. One in six people over the age of 80 have Dementia.
More than 225,000 people will develop Dementia this year, which is one every three minutes.
