Dementia Uk


Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain. There are over 200 subtypes of dementia, but the five most common are: Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia and mixed dementia.

The brain is made up of nerve cells (neurones) that communicate with each other by sending messages. Dementia damages the nerve cells in the brain so messages can’t be sent from and to the brain effectively, which prevents the body from functioning normally.

Regardless of which type of dementia is diagnosed and what part of the brain is affected, each person will experience dementia in their own unique way.

Dementia can affect a person at any age but it is more commonly diagnosed in people over the age of 65 years. A person developing dementia before age 65 is said to have young onset dementia.

There are over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this is set to rise to over one million by 2021.

Mr Bob Staten

Dearest Chris, Tom and Giles, such sad times. Hazel & I are sorry we won't be with you there but you know that we'll be thinking of you, Larri and Eleanor on Friday and remembering wonderful Eileen: the twinkle in the eye, the naughty giggle and then us laughing until it hurt as she told some tale or other of a life lived absolutely to the full. At least she'll be able to look after the ‘old goat’ now. Fondest love to you all.
