Five things you should know about dementia:

  • it’s not a natural part of growing old
  • it’s caused by diseases of the brain.  The most common of these is Alzheimer’s
  • it’s not just about losing your memory – it can affect thinking, communicating and doing every day tasks
  • it’s possible to live well with it
  • there’s more to a person than the dementia.

With support, people with dementia can and do take an active role in life.
