Dementia: the “quiet crisis”

This week on Body Talk, in association with Spire Hartswood Hospital, Jules Bottazzi talked to Jo Coughlan, manager of Anisha Grange care home in Billericay about what David Cameron recently described as the “quiet crisis” in our country – dementia.

Official figures suggest that around 800,000 people in the UK have a dementia, but the actual figure is thought to be far higher, as many are undiagnosed.

Jo explained that dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of conditions associated with memory loss, and talked about the symptoms and causes. She explained why early diagnosis is recommended and what good dementia care should look like.
