Helping beat dementia.
Dementia affects 850,000 in the UK.
Every 3.2 minutes someone develops dementia in the UK.
The only way to beat the condition is through medical research.
Why is dementia research important now?
Dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face today. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and other types of dementia, is set to double over the next 30 years.
Research offers hope. It is only through research that we can understand what causes the disease, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure.
But for research to progress we need more people to take part in more studies.
Our knowledge of dementia currently lags behind that of other major diseases, such as cancer or heart disease. We have to close this gap.
Anyone, with or without dementia, can register as a volunteer or sign-up for someone else, providing that you have their consent.
Signing up is the first step in becoming involved in supporting vital research studies across the nation.
