Member activities throughout World Alzheimer’s Month 2022
Throughout September 2022, Alzheimer and dementia organisations across the globe took part in World Alzheimer’s Month, in the form of national campaigns, lighting of public monuments, Memory Walks and more.
The 2022 campaign theme, ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s’, centred around the importance of post-diagnosis support, as well as highlighted the necessity in coming together to defeat the persisting stigmatic ideas and misconceptions that still surround dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Additionally, as a part of this year’s campaign, ADI highlighted the importance of risk reduction and knowing the risk factors for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Individual infographics for each of the risk factors were created, translated and distributed to and by members.
