Carey Mulligan will front a PR campaign for the Alzheimer's Society in an attempt to raise awareness.
During Dementia Awareness Week, Carey will try and bring the condition to light, as it affects one in three people at the age of 65.
This includes her own grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2004.
"I am committed to helping the Alzheimer’s Society in any way I can. My family and I rely on the help of organizations like Alzheimer’s Society to help us understand the disease and guide us in the care of my grandmother.
By speaking about my grandmother’s dementia I hope to shine a light on the condition. This Dementia Awareness Week we are asking people to ‘remember the person’ by looking beyond someone’s diagnosis of dementia and engaging with them."
They hope to show that just because a person has dementia, it doesn't mean they're no longer a person.
Carey is so great! You go, gurl!
