‘Christmas to remember’ campaign aims to raise awareness of dementia

Last week, the ‘Christmas to remember’ campaign was launched by actress Carey Mulligan and the Prime Minister at Downing Street. It is a joint digital campaign from Number 10, Department of Health and Alzheimer’s Society. It aims to raise awareness of dementia and encourage people to take appropriate action if they spot signs of the condition in family or friends over the festive season.

People with dementia, carers, celebrities and the general public are all being encouraged to share their Christmas memories to help highlight dementia as an issue. A range of these memories is being published on the Christmas to remember blog and people can join the conversation on twitter by using #xmas2remember.

More information can be found at the Department of Health's website.
