Product Description

Dementia is the term used to describe the symptoms of a large group of illnesses which cause a progressive decline in a person's mental functioning. It is a broad term which describes a loss of memory, intellect, social skills and normal emotional reactions. 

Alzheimer's disease and Vascular Dementia are the most common dementia accounting for over 90% of all cases. Dementia can happen to anybody, but it is more common after the age of 65. It is important to remember that most older people do not get dementia - it is not a normal part of aging. 

'Speaking From Experience' offers first hand accounts from people living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, their partners and carers. It looks at how they deal with the disease on a day to day basis.

"It's difficult. It's really sad watching your best friend and the person you've been closest to just disappear." Jan
