DH launch dementia campaign

21st September 2012

A campaign has been launched by the Department of Health to encourage people to talk to loved ones showing signs of dementia.

The three-month campaign supported by the Alzheimer’s Society and launched on World Alzheimer’s Day, will raise awareness of the condition, early signs and symptoms and how to seek help. Sir Michael Parkinson, Fiona Phillips and legendary England goalkeeper Gordon Banks have lent their support to the campaign – part of the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge - by sharing their personal experiences of dementia in a series of short films.
