Doreen's 55 Mile Walk for Alzheimer's

Every year, on September 21st, the world comes together to observe World Alzheimer's Day. This global event is dedicated to raising awareness about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, as well as challenging the stigma and misconceptions that surround these conditions. It's a day when people from all walks of life unite to show support for those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It not only impacts the individuals diagnosed but also places a significant burden on their families and communities.

We invite you to explore our website for valuable insights on how you can positively impact the lives of individuals dealing with Dementia and Alzheimer's news/world-alzheimers-day-2023/bp38/



It was fantastic to hear from one of our support workers, Doreen, about how she is raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Research.Doreen lives in Teignmouth and is going to be walking 55 miles throughout October.

Why 55 miles? There are currently 55 million people living with Dementia worldwide.

Doreen said “I have worked with and still do work with people with this horrible disease. Hopefully my son Dougy will join me and help me reach my target of One Hundred Pounds”.
