Summary

Let's talk about dementia

Detailed description

On Sept 1, kicking off World Alzheimer's Month, Alzheimer's Disease International joined forces with the Pan American Health Organization, launching Let's Talk About Dementia, a campaign aiming “to demystify dementia and to get people talking”. The ambition is to encourage discussion in families and with health providers to reduce the stigma associated with Alzheimer's disease and all forms of dementia. Events elsewhere include the Age Against the Machine festival in the UK, which offers a practical workshop on making homes, workplaces, or projects dementia-friendly and a performance of How to Keep Time, which looks at the effects of dementia on speech, memory, and family life.
