September marks World Alzheimer's Month so there's no better time to become a Dementia Friend. Check @dementiafriends on how to get involved.

By 2021, one million people in the UK will be living with dementia so don't we owe it to these people to contribute to making sure our communities are dementia friendly?

Bill, a support worker, describes a friend in the military - an "upstanding, very well presented" man - who got dementia. "Alarm bells were raised when he was heard screaming in his bedroom in the house he had lived in for 20 years as he had forgotten where he was."
