Dementia

Supporting Hampshire Residents who live with Dementia

their Carers and the Community

 

Dementia is a broad category of brain diseases that cause a long-term and often gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember that is great enough to affect a person’s daily functioning. Other common symptoms include emotional problems, problems with language, and a decrease in motivation.

To explain this in more detail, Awaaz FM teamed up with a host of professionals and explain this to our listeners in more detail.
