WORLD ALZHEIMER'S MONTH
September is World Alzheimer's Month and I met with representatives from Alzheimer's Research UK, the leading dementia research charity in the UK.
This charity is working to revolutionise the way we treat, diagnose and prevent dementia.
With almost one million people living with dementia in the UK, half of us will be directly affected by it in our lifetimes, either by caring for someone either the condition, developing it ourselves or both.
It is estimated in my constituency of North Ayrshire & Arran, 1425 people have been diagnosed with this cruel and distressing disease but many others go undiagnosed.
More research into and understanding if this condition is vital.
