DEMENTIA AFFECTS MORE THAN 820,000

PEOPLE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

 

 

More than 820,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia, according to the Alzheimer's Research Trust.

 

Dementia has no gender barriers and affects both men and women

 

  • Dementia mainly affects older people.  The longer a person lives the higher the risk of developing a type of dementia.

 

  • There are 15,000 people in the UK under the age of 65 who have dementia.  The fact that dementia can affect younger people is something that can be over looked by families, the person themselves, even professionals can be slow to consider dementia as a possibility with younger people.

 

 

What is dementia?

Dementia is a term that is used to describe a collection of symptoms including memory loss, problems with reasoning and communication skills, and a reduction in a person's abilities and skills in carrying out daily activities such as washing, dressing, cooking and caring for self.

 

Memory Loss –

This can be one of the first symptoms people notice.  The observations people report include - noticing their loved ones forgetting things that have happened earlier in the day, getting confused about messages and who people are, getting lost whilst out and about, repeating themselves, and appearing not to be paying attention or following conversations.

 

Problems with communication

Some people experience problems with expressing themselves, taking and understanding things. They get confused about words and might use the wrong words for common things and mix words up.  Reading and understanding written text can become problematic.

 

Types of Dementia

There are a number of different types of dementia, the most common being Alzheimer's disease. Some people get diagnosed as having a mixed dementia; this is when the presentation shows the person to have elements of more than one type of dementia.

 

A Debilitating Disease

Dementia is a progressive condition, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse.  This progression will vary from person to person and each person will experience dementia in a different way.  Although the person will have some of the above symptoms, the degree to which they affect an individual will vary and not all people will have all of these symptoms.
