Letter to Editor – Let’s unite against dementia in 2019
Alzheimer’s Society Cymru will mark its 40th anniversary this year, celebrating our on-going commitment to stopping dementia in its tracks.
I’d like to thank everyone who united against dementia last year by fundraising, campaigning and volunteering, helping us challenge perceptions, fund research and improve and provide care and support.
There are many highlights from 2018 including opening the £20m Dementia Research Institute in Cardiff, raising over £230,000 through Memory Walks and reaching over 125,000 Dementia Friends in Wales.
We urgently need to find a cure, improve care and offer help and understanding for the 45,000 people living with dementia in Wales.
And with the start of a new year, it’s the ideal time to take on a new challenge and unite against dementia. From becoming a Side by Side volunteer for an isolated person with dementia to fundraising, campaigning or signing up to join dementia research there are so many ways for you to get involved.
Whether you can give an hour or a day, every action counts. Please visit: alzheimers.org.uk/getinvolved to find out more.
