Dementia is a group of symptoms which include gradual loss of memory, confusion, and problems with thinking, speaking and carrying out simple tasks.
Dementia affects around 850,000 people in the UK and becomes more common with age, although it can develop in younger people. Most people who develop dementia are over 65, but it is not a normal part of growing old and most older people never develop dementia.
Everyday almost 600 people develop dementia in the UK. Diagnoses of dementia in Greenwich are predicted to increase by 30% by 2021 with numbers estimated to increase to over 2500. Over 100 people in Greenwich under 65 have a diagnosis of dementia.
