About Dementia

If someone you know or a family member has been diagnosed with dementia, you may be feeling anxious or confused.

The word dementia describes a group of symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language, and sometimes changes in mood or behaviour. These changes are often small to start with, but with the appropriate advice and support people can and do live well with Dementia.

The Alzheimer’s Society has published a Dementia Guide for those who have recently been diagnosed with Dementia and below The Brain Tour which allows viewers to learn more about the functioning of the brain and how this may be affected throughout the disease process.

It is important to remember that every person is unique and will experience symptoms in their own way.
