Today is World Alzheimer’s Day – a day to challenge misconceptions. Many of us will know of someone who had or has Alzheimers, yet too many people still think dementia is just a natural part of ageing, meaning people don’t realise this is something one day we could overcome.

As part of World Alzheimer’s Day, Alzheimer’s Research UK has created the ~ShareTheOrange”, a campaign that helps raise awareness and improve understanding of the diseases that cause dementia.
