“The Alzheimer’s Show was born from an urgent need to recognise and support the growing numbers of people in the UK whose lives are affected by dementia.  There are currently 800,000 adults, from as young as 40, living with the disease in the UK,” explained Nigel Ward, Founder of The Alzheimer’s Show.

“The objective of the Alzheimer’s Show is to link-up individuals living with dementia, and their carers, friends, family, with the professionals and organisations which have the products and services that can make an immediate and very real difference to the lives of people with dementia. Often these products are hard to find, or their existence is not known.  Our aim is to bring them all under one roof,” concluded Nigel Ward.
