CHANGING LIVES TOGETHER

Ricoh Printed Memories

Printed Memories is an exciting new initiative, which aims to create positive impact by supporting people with dementia, and their families and friends affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Printed Memories is a result of the partnership between Ricoh Europe and Alzheimer’s Research, one of the world’s leading research charities focused on finding a solution to dementia. Ricoh people, technologies and expertise will help Alzheimer’s Research achieve its essential mission:

“To bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025.”

Ricoh improves the communities its people live and work in. The Alzheimer’s Research partnership helps employees better understand how their efforts, expertise and technologies contribute to the work being done to tackle Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Dementia is one of the world’s largest medical and societal challenges. Over 9.9 million people develop dementia worldwide each year - that’s one new case every 3.2 seconds. The total estimated worldwide cost of dementia was US$818 billion in 2015, representing 1.09% of global GDP. This year, the global cost of dementia will rise above a trillion US Dollars.

Alzheimer’s Research

One in three children born today will die with dementia. Today, there are no effective treatments and no dementia survivors, but research can change this.

Alzheimer’s Research is the world’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by passionate scientists and supporters, it challenges the way people think about dementia, uniting the big thinkers in the field and scientific funding for the research that will deliver a cure.

Focus on four key areas make the mission to bring about the first life-changing Alzheimer’s treatment by 2025 a reality:

  • Understand the diseases that cause dementia
  • Diagnose people earlier and more accurately
  • Reduce risk, backed by the latest evidence
  • Treat dementia effectively

Through these important strands of work, Alzheimer’s Research will bring about breakthroughs that will change lives.

Together, we can be the generation to defeat dementia.
