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!”
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.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
