It is very important for anyone who has regular problems with their memory, or thinking, to be assessed by a health professional.
If these problems are because of dementia, getting an early diagnosis has many benefits.
It gives the person an explanation for their symptoms, gives them access to treatment, advice and support, and allows them to plan for the future.
Knowing the type of dementia eg Alzheimers or vascular dementia is important. There is no cure for dementia yet, but the right care and treatment can help a person with dementia live well for as long as possible.
