Get involved in World Alzheimer’s Month 2018
Who will you tell about Join Dementia Research?
This World Alzheimer’s Month, we’re asking for your help.
Research is the best way to make real change to the lives of people living with dementia.
The more people who know about research opportunities and get involved, the greater the chance we have to improve dementia care and treatments – and one day find a cure.
Join Dementia Research makes it easier than ever for people living with dementia in the UK, and their careers, to get involved in research. But not enough people know about this opportunity.
More people need to be talking about research – doctors, nurses, friends and family. We want everyone to know why we’re here and how to get involved.
What can you do? #PassItOn
September is World Alzheimer’s Month, and we want to raise awareness of Join Dementia Research.
To do this, we’re urging everyone to tell someone who would benefit from knowing about Join Dementia Research.
25 million of us in the UK have a friend or family member with dementia. Imagine the difference we could make if we all told just one person about the opportunity to take part in vital studies.
Who will you tell? It could be someone living with dementia, a carer, a loved one, or anyone else you think should be aware.
