Dementia is one of the greatest challenges we face in society today – over 850,000 people are living with the disease with approximately 45,000 of this number under the age of 65 and over 225,000 people will develop dementia this year.
The village of Bramhope has come together to become Friends of Dementia. At our first meeting I was moved by the accounts relatives and carers gave whilst supporting loved ones living with this disease.
