Dementia and Alzheimer’s are commonly thought of as being characterised by forgetfulness. There are currently more than 800,000 people in the UK with a diagnosis of Dementia. Almost three quarters of those affected are over the age of 65.

With the right care and support, many dementia sufferers are able to remain safely at home among their family and friends.
