In the UK there are 850,000 people living with some form of dementia. With an ageing population, numbers are set to rise to 1 million by 2025 and 2 million by 2051. In fact, someone develops dementia every three minutes.
Whilst we wait and hope for a cure, there is much that can be done right now to care for and enable people living with dementia to live healthier, more active and enjoyable lives and bring emotional, social and physical benefits to dementia affected families. This is the challenge ahead of us as a society and why Dementia Adventure exists.
