Alzheimer’s Society reaches one million Dementia Friends

I was delighted to hear Alzheimer’s Society announce that they have reached a fantastic milestone in changing the lives of people with dementia.

Dementia Friends is a social movement which encourages people to have a better understanding of dementia and take action, no matter how big or small.

We have been supporting Dementia Friends as a corporate partner and are also part of the Prime Ministers Dementia Challenge Group on Health and Wellbeing.  Today, I am proud that, along with many of my Celesio UK colleagues, I am part of the one million Dementia Friends who are making a difference for people with the disease.

As well as marking this momentous achievement, further announcements have been made about improving faster diagnosis and importantly, further commitments to fund research into finding a cure.

We will remain committed to growing our own community of Dementia Friends and playing our part in Dementia Friendly communities as we work together to create another three million Dementia Friends.
