Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease

Dementia is a progressive condition that largely affects older people, impacting on their memory, language, ability to communicate, mood and personality. The course of the illness may be gradual and sometimes subtle, as is classically the case in Alzheimer’s disease. As our population ages, the prevalence of dementia is expected to increase. Recent research published indicates it may be possible to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease at an earlier stage. This may be beneficial in terms of care planning and service provision in the future. There are lots of available sources of information if you or a loved one is suffering from memory loss. Please see links below for further details.
