It’s estimated that 1 in 14 people aged over 65 has dementia, and the likelihood of developing it increases significantly with age. In fact, 1 in 6 people over 80 live with the condition.
It is an unpredictable and progressive disease, with no cure at present. Carers and those with dementia can find themselves isolated, frustrated and emotionally exhausted.
In this webinar we look at what dementia is and the unique challenges of being a carer for someone with dementia. We explore some of the not-so obvious
lifestyle changes that help lower our risk. Lastly, we examine the support available, through the Bank Workers Charity and the innovation in dementia
