Dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. It’s caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse.
There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2025. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms making them the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers.
