What is Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s is described as advancing mental decline, usually occurring in middle or old age due to degeneration of the brain. It is the commonest cause of premature senile dementia.
Although Alzheimer’s becomes more common with advancing age, it’s not a normal part of ageing. Most people who develop this disease are over the age of 65.
However, early-onset Alzheimer’s can affect younger people. Around 5% of people with Alzheimer’s are estimated to be under 65.
The term dementia describes a group of varied symptoms, including confusion, memory loss, communications issues and mood changes.
Dementia affects how people function, their emotions and their health. Over time, people with dementia become less able to carry out normal, daily activities and a declining ability to think, act and reason clearly.
It’s estimated that 850,000 people in the UK are affected by dementia.
