We are delighted to be working and supporting Alzheimer’s Society , this is the 21st century biggest killer facts shows that dementia will affect 1 in 3 people this can be through family or friends but we believe that we can help beat this together. Dementia currently affects around 850,000 people in the UK, with a staggering one in 14 people over the age of 65 living with the condition.
“Everyone, from banks and supermarkets to the local corner shop and hairdresser, share responsibility
for ensuring that people with dementia feel understood, valued and able to contribute to their community.”
What causes dementia?
There are a number of diseases that result in dementia, with the most common cause being Alzheimer’s disease. This is where an abnormal protein surrounds brain cells and another protein damages their internal structure. Over time the chemical connections between brain cells are lost and cells begin to die.
Another common type of dementia is vascular dementia; this occurs when the oxygen supply to the brain is reduced because of narrowing or blockage of blood vessels, leading to brain cells becoming damaged or dying. The symptoms can occur suddenly, following a stroke, or develop over time after a series of small strokes.
