Dementia is one of our greatest health challenges. One in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime unless we bring about life-changing preventions and treatments.
The condition doesn’t just affect memory, it can also affect a person’s ability to walk, communicate and even swallow. It was the leading cause of death for women in England and Wales in 2020.
Today, there are no effective treatments to slow, stop or prevent diseases that cause dementia, such as Alzheimer’s. But thanks to our amazing supporters, there are now more researchers than ever working to change that and Alzheimer’s Research UK is spearheading efforts to translate promising discoveries in the laboratory into treatments for the future.
We believe in making breakthroughs to bring about a world free from dementia, and that’s where you come in. Sign up to an event for Alzheimer’s Research UK today, because hope starts with you.
