Have you, or has someone close to you got dementia or recently been diagnosed with dementia? There are many kinds of dementia including Alzheimer's Disease, which is the most common kind. It affects everyone differently. Broadly, the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s are:

- reduced or lost memory or concentration
- mood changes
- problems with communication and perception
- problems with reasoning
- change in personality
- difficulty doing everyday things which could be anything from enjoying hobbies, shopping or socialising.

If you are worried that you, or someone you know may have dementia, the first step is to go and see your GP.
