Every three minutes, somebody in the UK develops dementia, an incurable brain disease that robs people of their memory, independence and ability to function in everyday life. Although associated with the elderly, dementia can strike people as young as 30.

This is why Alzheimer’s Society exists; we are the UK’s leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. We ensure that those living with dementia today receive the vital support they need to have the best possible quality of life while investing heavily in world class research and campaigning for greater awareness and a better society for those with dementia.
