It is Elf Day! Today, the 6th of December, people from across the UK will help to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Society by dressing up as elves. Taking part in Elf Day helps people living with dementia get the vital support they need.
For only £100 you could help fund a day’s cost of a dementia advisor for their telephone support line. These advisors provide vital work by giving people a listening ear and specialist guidance when it’s need the most.
Why do Alzheimer’s Society need support today?
- Dementia is the biggest health and social challenge of our time.
- There is currently estimated to be 900,000 people in the UK with dementia with many undiagnosed and facing the realities of their condition alone.
- With the help and support from fundraising, Alzheimer’s Society can give vital support to those who need it the most, hold decision-makers to account and fund ground breaking research to transform the future for everyone with dementia.
1 in 3 lives will be devastated by dementia in the future. The time to act is now!
How does the Alzheimer’s Society provide help and hope?
