Project Description

Alzheimer’s Research UK

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading research charity aiming to defeat dementia.
We power world-class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia sooner. Our pioneering work focuses on understanding dementia, improving diagnosis, reducing risk and developing treatments.
We aim to empower people across all generations through greater understanding of dementia. As part of this mission, we produce free, high-quality health information booklets on dementia and the diseases that cause it. These are ideal for display in the surgery, and will be available on our stand. They include our pocket-sized leaflet ‘A quick guide to dementia’, available in Polish, Welsh, several South Asian languages and Arabic, as well as English.

We will also be demonstrating our virtual reality experience ‘A walk through dementia’. Used with a Google cardboard headset, this was developed to give people a glimpse of what life is like for someone with dementia. Come and give it a try!
