Dementia is not a single illness, but a group of symptoms caused by damage to the brain.

You should look out for:

  • memory loss, such as remembering past events much more easily than recent ones
  • problems thinking or reasoning, or finding it hard to follow conversations or TV programmes
  • feeling anxious, depressed or angry about memory loss, or feeling confused, even when in a familiar environment

If you’re worried about your memory, it’s well worth talking to a clinician. They may be able to reassure you that you don’t have dementia. But if you do have dementia, an early diagnosis may help you get the right treatment and support in place in good time. Finding out sooner rather than later can also give friends and family valuable time to adjust, and prepare for the future.
