About National Dementia Carers’ Day

National Dementia Carers’ Day 2017, Sunday 10th September

NDCD has been founded by a coalition of partners including Dementia UK, Alzheimer’s Society and SweetTree Home Care Services. Each of the foundering organisations are dedicated to improving quality of life for people living with dementia and the quality of life of those caring for a loved one living with the condition. The founders are aligned in the overall aim of raising awareness of and supporting the role of informal dementia carers.

Caring for a loved one with dementia poses many challenges for families and caregivers. Living with dementia requires having the right care, and it’s time to recognise and share what it means to be a carer.


Share We want to hear about the unique ways in which you, or a carer you know, supports someone living with dementia. All of the submissions that we receive will be read by representatives from SweetTree Home Care Services and may be shared as part of the NDCD campaign.

Recognise Are you planning on sending someone flowers? Cooking someone their favourite meal? Holding a dementia awareness event? We want to hear how you plan to recognise a dementia carer/s you know.
