The word dementia is used to describe a group of symptoms including memory loss, confusion, mood changes and difficulty with day-to-day tasks. There are many causes of the condition, with Alzheimer’s disease the most common. The terms dementia and Alzheimer’s are not interchangeable.
The diseases that cause dementia have different symptoms, though many overlap. These diseases cause nerve cells to stop working properly in specific areas of the brain, and symptoms will worsen over time as the disease progresses.
- More than 830,000 people in the UK are affected by dementia
- One in three people over 65 will die with dementia
- Dementia costs the UK economy £23.6bn each year, with £12.7bn of this cost met by unpaid carers
The most common causes of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia
