Apodi Head office Supports Dementia UK with "Time for a Cuppa"
The latest fund raising event at Apodi Head office was in aid of Dementia UK.
The head office team hosted a " Time for a Cuppa" tea and cake party which raised an excellent £300 . A delicious spread of cakes and biscuits were provided by our head office bakers and enjoyed over a tea or coffee by the rest of the team in the office. Well done to all involved.
Dementia is a global concern but it is most often seen in wealthier countries, where people are likely to live into very old age. The Alzheimer’s Society (2015) reports there are over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today. Of these, approximately, 42,000 are people with young onset dementia, which affects people under the age of 65. As a person’s age increases, so does the risk of them developing dementia. It is estimated that the number of people living with dementia in the UK by 2025 will rise to over 1 million. Rates of diagnosis are improving but many people with dementia are thought to still be undiagnosed.
