There are 850,000 people in the UK diagnosed with dementia – that’s around 1 in 6 people. Those diagnosed with dementia are typically over 80 but studies show that only 43% of people with dementia have actually been diagnosed! Dementia is a general term for loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life, with Alzheimer’s disease being the most common.

Wendy Mitchell who, working as a manager in the NHS, showed her first symptoms of dementia aged 56, will be joining us to talk and answer questions about ‘What I wish people know about dementia’, which is the title of her second book, published in 2022.
