Alzheimer’s Society asks us all to learn more about dementia this World Alzheimer’s Day 

World Alzheimer’s Day takes place on 21 September and is part of World Alzheimer’s Month. This year, the Alzheimer’s Society is “encouraging everyone to know the signs and symptoms of dementia so they can get the right diagnosis and support as quickly as possible”. 

While we appreciate that many FHT members are very knowledgeable about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, if this is an area you are less familiar with, why not spend just 30 minutes or so to enhance your knowledge in this area. 

There is lots of useful information available on the Alzheimer’s Society website, and below are links to three articles by dementia and massage specialist, Nicolle Mitchell, MFHT, that have been published in International Therapist magazine: 

Peace of mind – supporting people with dementia  

Peace process – a case study  

The link between dementia and trauma 

We hope you find the above resources useful. If you’d like to learn more about International Therapist and some of the many other benefits you receive as a member of the FHT, please visit fht.org.uk/join-us
