There are currently about 750,000 people in the UK with a form of dementia:
- 40-64 years: 1 in 1400
- 65-69 years: 1 in 100
- 70-79 years: 1 in 25
- 80+ years: 1 in 6
- Dementia will mean that a person may have a difficulty with memory, knowing where they are, what the time is, who they are and who the people around them are.
- It becomes very hard to remember what has happened recently.
- It becomes very hard to learn new things.
- Memories from the past can often become more 'real'.
