It’s not too late to take action
I WANT to thank everyone in London who united with us during Dementia Action Week (21 – 27 May) to help the 72,000 people with the condition in our city.
We saw the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, pledge to make London the world’s first ‘dementiafriendly’ capital city where people affected by dementia – no matter who they are or where they live – are able to live well with the condition and enjoy all that London has to offer. There is still much work to do. New Alzheimer’s Society research shows that for 50% of people in London, dementia is the greatest concern for old age. We know that too many people face the condition alone, without adequate support.
If you missed out during the week, it’s not too late to take action on dementia in London. Visit alzheimers.org.uk/ dementia friendly london to find out how you can get involved and make a difference. Linda O’Sullivan Head of Region, London Alzheimer’s Society
