World Alzheimer’s Day with wilko and Alzheimer’s Society
World Alzheimer’s Day takes place on 21st September and is part of World Alzheimer's Month. This year, people are talking about the power of knowledge. By learning more about dementia and understanding changes in memory and behaviour, you and your loved ones can feel empowered to reach out for the help and support you need. It’s the little wins that make a world of difference and this year we’re supporting World Alzheimer’s Day by inviting our customers to increase their knowledge of dementia and become Dementia Friends by watching a short video.
