Dementia in England

Dementia is a common condition, and as you get older, your risk of developing the condition increases. Memory loss is normal as you get older, but if it begins to affect your daily life or it worries you, you should contact your GP for advice.

You can also visit the NHS Choices, which provides comprehensive information about dementia, as well as support for those caring for people with dementia.
