National Dementia Carers Day
National Dementia Carers Day is an annual day which raises awareness and gives support and recognition to the thousands of informal dementia carers across the country. There are currently 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, with many cared for by friends or family members. 39% of these informal carers are estimated to spend more than 100 hours per week caring for the person with dementia. The national day was created by Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia UK and Sweet Tree Home Care Services.
