Living well with dementia

Many people diagnosed with dementia continue to live fulfilled and happy lives for many years, even if adjustments are necessary.

Keeping well and staying independent

Dementia will change your life and the lives of those around you.

In most cases, it is not known exactly what causes dementia. However, research suggests that diet and lifestyle, as well as age, are likely to be important factors.
