World Alzheimer's Day Coffee Morning

Date: 21 September 2023
Time: 11:00 to 12:30

21 September is World Alzheimer's Day. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia in the UK.

Join us for a Coffee Morning co-organised by CRN South London and Croydon BME Forum to learn about dementia, its types, signs and symptoms.

We will be joined by Nikki Zimmerman who works as the Young Onset Dementia Facilitator for St George’s Hospital. She is also the Support Lead at Rare Dementia Support at the Dementia Research Centre, University College London. In addition to this, she facilitates the monthly Young Onset Support Group at St George’s Hospital in Wandsworth.

We will also hear about Join Dementia Research which is a nationwide service that enables anyone aged 18 or over in the UK to find and take part in vital dementia research studies. It aims to make a difference for people affected by dementia through research.

Dementia is one of the biggest health challenges we face today. Around 900,000 people are currently living with dementia in the UK, this is estimated to increase to 1 million by 2025.

Research helps us to improve diagnosis, treatment and care. Through research, we can understand what causes the disease, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure.
