World Alzheimer’s Month

Every year World Alzheimer’s Month takes place in September. It’s an opportunity for organisations and individuals around the world to raise awareness, highlight issues faced by people affected by dementia and demonstrate how we can overcome them to help people live well with dementia.

The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month in 2021 is ‘Know dementia, know Alzheimer’s’. This World Alzheimer’s Month, the Alzheimer’s Society is encouraging everyone to learn more about dementia. They have factsheets and booklets about dementia available to read online, download or order to your door.

Globally, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face, with nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide. People living with dementia may have always managed their own or their family’s finances. But at some point, they may need extra support to help them. You can find more information about the help and support available at: www.nhs.uk/conditions/dementia/finances/

Hamnett Wealth Management are working towards becoming a dementia-friendly business. All of our staff have completed online training that covered three key areas – people, processes and places.

Some areas of finance can be complex but we always speak in plain English and explain everything comprehensively. We encourage clients to ask as many questions as they need to until they are comfortable and able to make an informed decision.
