Dementia Action Week Events 2019

Dementia Action Week 2019

This Dementia Action Week, we’re encouraging everyone to take action by starting a conversation; whether it’s calling a relative with dementia or visiting a neighbour, it’s time to start talking.

You can support the week by attending an event near you and sharing our messages on social media. 

Please see a list of events below taking place during Dementia Action Week 20 - 26 May 2019.

Throughout Dementia Action Week, Grantham Library has kindly allowed the Grantham Volunteer Dementia Support (GVDS) group to have an information stand in the foyer.

Members of the GVDS group and Alzheimer’s Society members will be on hand at certain times to discuss queries from the public. Grantham Library is located at Isaac Newton Centre, Grantham, NG31 6EE.
