Dementia Awareness

Did you know Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia.

There are around 800,000 people in the UK with dementia. It mainly affects people over the age of 65 (one in 14 people in this age group have dementia), and the likelihood of developing dementia increases significantly with age. However, it can affect younger people. There are at least 17,000 people in the UK who developed dementia before they were 65. It is likely that this figure has been underestimated and the real number may be up to three times higher. Dementia can affect men and women.
