Dementia Awareness has received a lot of press recently, as understanding Dementia and understanding sufferer’s needs is very important. Dementia is a very common condition, with over 800,000 people in the UK suffering with the condition.

Due to the condition being so common, it is advisable to be well-informed in order to be prepared and know how to deal with people suffering from dementia.
