Our January ’Supporter Spotlight’ falls on Dementia Carers Count, a charity which offers life-changing, practical, professional health and care support for families living with dementia. Its services are free and give family carers the opportunity to understand more about dementia, connect with others in a similar situation and look after themselves while navigating the highs and lows of supporting someone with dementia.

What’s on at The Alzheimer’s Show 2022

Supporter DemDicArtboard 2 copy 3Dementia Dictionary

The Alzheimer’s Show are proud to support the Dementia Dictionary, a new free service helping to create an understanding of the Language of Dementia. In most forms of dementia the ability to speak normally will be impaired and therefore the brain will find new ways to communicate via actions, noises, behaviours and body language, this is called the Language of Dementia. The Dementia Dictionary “a freely available service” allows us to translate these into a recognised language.
