What is Dementia?

There is a great deal of confusion over what Dementia is.  In fact, it is an umbrella term that covers a variety of different degenerative brain conditions that impair mental functioning.

The Alzheimer's Society provide a whole variety of informative factsheets on their websites which we are pleased to supply links to.  Substantial information is also available on specific areas.  Just click on the link for the area you are currently interested in.

You can also download PDFs of each factsheet with the built in facility to expand the text to suit your visual requirements.
