How You Can Get Involved in Dementia Awareness Week 


Dementia affects millions of people worldwide, and it is so important to raise awareness about this condition. Dementia Awareness Week is an annual event that takes place to help people understand dementia and support those who are living with it. Here at Athena Healthcare Group, we create a detailed plans for all our residents with the help of their loved ones. Consequently, this helps us to tailor our dementia care and approach in line with the individual – always promoting choice, dignity and respect.

Here are a few ways you can get involved…


You can find organisations that are working towards this cause and offer your services. In addition, volunteering can range from helping with fundraising, organising events, or even simply spreading the word.

Host an Event

Hosting an event is an excellent way to raise awareness about dementia. You can organise a walk, a fundraiser, or even a seminar to educate people about the disease. You can also collaborate with local organisations to make your event more effective.

Share Information

Sharing information is one of the easiest ways to get involved in Dementia Awareness Week. Furthermore, you can share information on social media, post flyers in your local community, or even talk to your friends and family about the importance of early detection and diagnosis.
