Some information in regards to Alzheimer's:
Up to 38,000 people in Ireland are affected by Dementia. Ageing is one of the single strongest risk factors for Alzheimer’s Disease, (the most common form of dementia).
Dementia is a general term used to describe a group of symptoms. These include impairment in memory, intellect, judgement, language, insight and a deterioration in social skills. The individual diagnosed with dementia may also demonstrate an acute sensitivity to his or her built and social environment and a high level of stress. While over 100 different diseases will produce the symptoms of dementia, it is known that Alzheimer’s Disease is by far the most common cause of dementia and accounts for more than 50% of all cases.
