We all forget things as we get older. However, memory loss that gets worse and affects daily life may be a sign of dementia. Dementia can cause problems with memory and how well a person is able to think and plan. The Alzheimer's Society says around 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. Usually dementia gets worse over time. How long this takes is different for each person. Some people stay the same for years. Others lose skills quickly. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage about dementia, the different types, how it’s treated, and much more.
