What Is Dementia ?

Dementia is the collective term for some physical diseases and conditions of the brain.

It is not a normal part of ageing, however the risk of dementia increases as we age.


People under 65 years of age can also develop dementia – this is known as younger onset dementia.

People can live well with dementia for a considerable time.


If you (or someone you know) are concerned about changes in speech or memory loss, please contact your GP.
