Carey Mulligan Hosts Alzheimer's Society Annual Carol Concert In Honor of Her Grandmother!

Carey Mulligan strikes a pose while hosting the Alzheimer’s Society’s 2019 “Carols At Christmas” Concert Benefit held at the Southwark Cathedral on Wednesday (December 18) in London, England.

The 34-year-old actress hosted the event in memory of her beloved grandmother, ‘Nans’ who had dementia. “I have had the privilege of being an Ambassador for Alzheimer’s Society for a number of years now,” she said. “And I know just how enormously dedicated the charity is to helping thousands of people with dementia every year.”

“People living with dementia and their families often feel alone and don’t have enough support,” Carey continued in a statement. “I’m proud to see the developments in research, but while we power progress for a cure, everyone affected by dementia must have somewhere to turn to for help and advice. Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Helpline is a lifeline to so many people, but it can only cope with increasing demand through donations, which is why I’m honored to be a part of such a fabulous event this evening. Dementia is heartbreaking, but it is possible to live well with dementia. Nans taught me that.”

“This Christmas, if you have a loved one with dementia, spend time with them,” Carey concluded. “Love them, the same way you always have. And please, if you can, give a Christmas gift to Alzheimer’s Society so we can make sure no one with dementia faces it alone.”
