Making time to ‘talk’ with the Leeds Alzheimer’s Society

This week is Dementia Awareness Week; a time to reflect on the huge numbers of people living with dementia. According to figures provided by the Alzheimer’s Society, over 80 per cent of people in care homes have dementia. There are 800,000 adults – some aged as young as 40 – living with dementia, but fewer than half of those have been diagnosed.

We’ve been speaking to the Leeds Alzheimer’s Society in Armley to find out what they are doing to mark the occasion and to find out what support is available for people living with dementia and their carers in Leeds. Click here for more.
