According to the Alzheimer’s Society there are around 800,000 people in the UK with dementia. Research says that one in three people over 65 will develop dementia, and two-thirds of those are women.
With people now living longer, the number of individuals with dementia is increasing and it is estimated that by 2021 there will be around 1 million people diagnosed in the UK.
Live Well with dementia is designed to support individuals and their friends and family too. Being active can have a significant impact on health and well-being and can help to improve the quality of life for people in all stages of dementia.
Live Well with Dementia sessions.
