Glasgow City, United Kingdom

Scotland

Did you know there are almost 1 million people in the UK living with dementia and nearly everyone in the UK will know or will have known someone affected by dementia. Yet there is still a lack of understanding about dementia.


Dementia is an umbrella term (like cancer) which encompasses over 100 different types of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Vascular Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia and Frontotemporal Dementia (Pick's Disease). Dementia's are not just about having a failing memory, dementia's are progressive brain diseases which cause brain damage. Almost 40,000 people under the age of 65 years are living with dementia in the UK.
