Dementia and Alzheimer’s

Dementia is caused by a disease of the brain such as Alzheimer’s or Vascular Dementia.

No two people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s are the same, everyone is affected differently.

Dementia is progressive so the symptoms get worse over time. Dementia can be managed and with early diagnosis there are medications available which in some cases may help. Research into Dementia is ongoing as they seek to find a cure and advancements are always being made in treatments.
