About Alzheimer's Society

Our mission is to transform the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will strive to create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice. 

'There are over 100 hundred types of dementia, so people will be effected in different ways. It was lovely that you used the phrase living with dementia, because that’s one of the big things that Alzheimer's Society works to do, to promote the idea that people can live well with dementia. They are not suffering from, they are living with.' Jack O'Neill, Dementia Support worker, London.
