What is dementia?

Dementia is not part of the natural ageing process.

Dementia affects the brain, making it harder to remember things or think as clearly as before. It's an umbrella term for over 100 different types of illnesses and disease symptoms. Symptoms of dementia may include memory loss and difficulties with day to day tasks, language and problem-solving.

Alzheimer Scotland provides information, support and dementia-friendly activities to help make sure nobody faces dementia alone.
