Dementia Action Week

Posted on May 5th, 2021

PEOPLE affected by dementia have been hit hardest by Covid. Across Liverpool City Region, Dementia Action Week aims to spread awareness and provide support, advice and …some fun.

From 17th to 23rd May an impressive range of mainly online activities will be taking place throughout the Region – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral – part of Alzheimer’s Society’s national campaign which also focusses on “curing the care system”.

Local dementia organisations, Councils, businesses and others are offering free public events via Facebook, Zoom and other digital platforms. Sessions will provide information about the condition and how to find help, family carer forums, music and fitness opportunities, talks on research and legal rights, special items on Young Onset dementia and more.

Jack Coutts, chair of Liverpool City Region Dementia Advisory Group said “For the first time the 6 Councils are collaborating in promoting the Week and this is a big step towards making the Region a truly Dementia Friendly Community.

There is something happening for everyone with any interest in dementia and we hope people will drop into the sessions to learn, get support and to enjoy.”

Over 18,000 people in Liverpool City Region are living with dementia which has been the main underlying condition for Covid-19 mortality, accounting for one in five of total deaths. Increased isolation and disruption to key services have also impacted more heavily on people with the condition than any other group.

Alzheimer’s Society said “Liverpool City Region’s plans for Dementia Action Week are looking fantastic!”

Full details of events and registration links can be found at Facebook.com/dementiaLCR or at www.daw21.dementiaactionliverpool.com.

Liverpool City Region Dementia Advisory Group is the body authorised to steer the LCR Combined Authority’s drive to promote dementia friendly policies and initiatives.
