This is a condition which typically affects older people though in some cases can affect younger people too. It occurs when the brain becomes damaged which in turn causes problems in a person’s ability to function on a day to day basis.
Things such as memory loss are usually the first to be affected and this is when it is important to seek help and support should you be worried. Other symptoms include, confusion, difficulties with communication and sudden changes in mood and/or behaviour. There is currently no cure for dementia.
