Jersey Water’s charity of choice for 2022 is Dementia Jersey.
Previously an arm of the UK Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Jersey ( previously Jersey Alzheimer’s Association) was formed in 2010 to support everyone in the island affected by dementia in whatever way.
Jersey now has over 1600 people diagnosed with some form of dementia and many more that we don’t know about.
Dementia Jersey aim to make Jersey a more dementia friendly island. To do that they provide specialised support and education services – including counselling, family support, educational workshops and training courses – that are available for anyone living with or affected by dementia.
