Dementia is an umbrella term for a condition that affects the brain, leading eventually to death. There are over 100 causes of dementia, the largest being Alzheimer’s disease at over 50%, and vascular disease. Over 700,000 have been diagnosed in the UK and, according to a YouGov poll, the lives of 25 million people are impacted in one way or another.
