  Dementia is a progressive brain dysfunction (in Latin 'dementia' means irrationality), which results in a restriction of daily activities and in most cases leads to long term need for care. Many diseases can result in dementia, the most common being Alzheimer's disease, though in younger people these figures vary and incidence is roughly 1:900 and is genetically linked.

We have endeavoured to provide the most accurate and up to date information possible for ordinary people seeking answers. As well as prescribed drugs, much benefit can be gained from vitamin supplements, especially B1, B12, E, Folic Acid and Anti-oxidants. Activities, mental stimulation and emotional well-being are also very important

Though our research is based on current medical thinking and practice, we are only human and trying to do our best. If you feel that any information is inaccurate or misleading please contact us at [email protected] we would like to hear from you
