World Alzheimer’s Month 2022: ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s’

Posted on: 31/08/2022

September is World Alzheimer's Month which aims to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia.

This year’s theme, ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s,’ continues on from the 2021 campaign, which focused on diagnosis, the warning signs of dementia, the continued effect of COVID-19 on the global dementia community and more. 

In 2022, the campaign will have a special focus on post-diagnosis support. Following recent developments and potential breakthroughs, in both dementia treatment and support, the campaign will aim to highlight the importance of support for people living with dementia and families following a diagnosis. 

How can Progress Lifeline support people living with dementia?

Progress Lifeline supports people living with dementia by providing solutions which allow the service user to feel supported and more independent. In particular, our personal lifeline alarm and Footprint device are particularly beneficial to people living with dementia. We have a dedicated section on our website which provides more information on how we can help here. On this page, you will see links to other resources including tips on how to get a better night’s sleep, where you can go for support and Dementia-friendly activities to enjoy with your loved ones.
