Today is #WorldAlzheimersDay - and it's time to take a stand.

Because every three seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with a form of dementia.

And by 2050, the number of people living with dementia will have tripled.

We urgently need more awareness. More kindness and understanding about the realities of the condition, more dementia-friendly communities and Dementia Friends across the UK and beyond.

We need real care for people with dementia today - and a cure tomorrow.

If you're with us, share this post today - and spread the word.
