Tools to help families with practical considerations.
Half a million women in the UK are currently living with dementia. A slightly smaller number of men. Many of these have families whose lives are affected dramatically by the need to care for their relatives. Although dementia affects more women than men, it doesn’t particularly discriminate. Certainly not on the grounds of background, education, lifestyle or status (alzheimer’s research UK).
Dementia is a really sensitive subject, partly because of the fear it instils in many of us, whether we have seen the suffering first hand or not.
A new research project is looking for volunteers, those currently well and those suffering from dementia can join the research project and help in the search for better treatments and ultimately a cure.
