It's Dementia Action Week 2022 in the UK. This week, there are plenty of activities to raise awareness and spring into action to address dementia. In the next couple of years, there will be an estimated 1 million people living with dementia in the UK, and we've already reached 55 million world wide. And of course, there are hundreds of thousands of unpaid carers supporting their relative or friend with dementia.
In this special #DAW2022 episode, I am talking to the Alzheimer's Society (Malayka Rahman and Hayley Hogan) and Hilary Tetlow, former carer and host of the peer support groups SURF Liverpool, about what DAW means and what we can all do to address dementia.
