Dementia is a condition characterised by gradual memory-loss that affects 1 in 5 people over the age of 80. The Alzheimers Society have a useful resource with in-depth information about dementia.
If you believe that a friend or relative may have dementia, encourage them to visit their Doctor and talk about their memory loss.
Milestones Trust can offer support with any stage of dementia, whether during the early part of the illness or if full residential nursing is required.
