Many of us notice that our memory gets worse as we get older, but it can be difficult to tell whether this is a sign of an underlying condition like dementia..

If you are diagnosed with dementia, this page gives some insight into what that might mean for you and how many people cope living with dementia.


Your GP may refer you to this service to have a proper assessment of your memory. Watch a video about the service.
