Agincare is proud to be unleashing our inner elf by dressing up – as much as we possibly can across all of our company. From home care offices, to care homes and staff in our individual head office teams, we’re all taking part and prizes for the best dressed team are on offer!

What is Elf Day?

Elf Day is the festive fundraiser created by the Alzheimer’s Society to help get you in the Christmas spirit whilst raising money to help beat dementia.

Of course there is a serious reason to all this festive fun and charity work, and that’s the battle to beat dementia. 

What is dementia? 

Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting 62 per cent of those diagnosed. Other types of dementia include; vascular dementia affecting 17 per cent of those diagnosed and mixed dementia affecting 10 per cent of those diagnosed.

What are the symptoms of dementia?

Symptoms include memory loss, confusion and problems with speech and understanding. Dementia is a terminal condition.

Who is affected? 

There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. 225,000 people will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes.
