Between dismay at the appalling impact of coronavirus on people affected by dementia and uncertainty about returning to any kind of normality, hope can be hard to maintain.
Deaths of people with dementia doubled in the spring, and over a quarter of people who died due to COVID-19 also had dementia. As we take action to ensure the significance of this is recognised, we’re still pushing to make sure that carers can visit relatives and friends with dementia safely. We’re working in partnerships with a range of organisations to get the results we all want.
One thing we can be sure of is that you’ve made an incredible difference – by adding your voice to our campaigns to keep dementia at the top of the agenda, and by helping us raise funds so that we’re still here for anyone who needs us.
