Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functioning to such an extent that it affects a person’s daily life and activities. Current research suggests that over 850,000 people in the UK are living with Dementia, 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 have dementia, and 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 suffer from the condition. The number of people with dementia is constantly increasing because people are living longer with it.
