World Alzheimers Day 21st September 2010

Everyone should be made aware of the increasing numbers of people suffering from Alzheimers and the urgent need for governments and the general public to take action and improve the help for people with dementia and their carers. Everyone should unite and make the effort as it is vital to act now before there are increased numbers in the future. Remember this does not just affect the life of the person suffering from this disease but also their carer’s life, and their families lives too. There are avenues where by the general public can bring awareness to this situation and people should certainly do so now and not later, help and take part in the activities and walks this World Alzheimers day September 21st 2010 and make it a day when everyone cares.

Please remember that Dementia can also affect younger people not just the elderly, about one in a thousand under 60yrs have what is called early onset, and although rare it can affect people in their 30’s 40’s and 50’s. There are about 16,000 people in Britain under the age of 65yrs who have Alzheimers,
