Adanac is now registered as a Dementia Friend.
"Dementia is caused by a number of diseases that affect the brain. The most common is Alzheimer's but diseases also include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and Pick's disease.
Different types of dementia affect the brain at different rates and in different ways, but other things like someone's personal circumstances, the people around them and the environment in which they live, will affect their experience of dementia. Dementia progresses in a way that is unique to each individual.
It is true that more people over 65 have dementia, but it is not exclusively an older person's disease; younger people get dementia too."
We are pleased to support the "Dementia Friends" Charity and be part of the "Dementia Friends Community". For more information, please click on the below link.
