Symptoms of dementia - It's time to talk about dementia - (2013)

Jack: It’s time to talk about dementia. Symptoms of dementia can include memory loss, difficulties with thinking, reasoning or language, and sudden changes in behaviour, but dementia affects everyone differently.

Some things to look out for are: struggling to remember recent events or people's names, finding it hard to follow conversations or TV programmes, repeating yourself or losing the thread of what you are saying, difficulty concentrating, thinking things through or following instructions, feeling confused even when in a well-known place, and becoming unusually anxious, depressed or agitated.

If you are worried that you, or someone close to you, might have dementia it’s important to talk about it.
