Dementia is affecting an increasing number of people.
In 2012, there were around 800,000 people suffering with some form of dementia – this had an estimated cost of £23 billion a year to the UK economy says the Alzheimer’s Society; this figure is even higher than the combined costs of care for cancer, strokes and heart disease.
