Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia. It is caused by a build-up of proteins in the brain which affect how the brain cells transmit messages.

As time passes, more and more brain cells are damaged, leading to worsening symptoms.

Age is the biggest risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s. It affects one in 14 people over the age of 65, and one in six people over the age of 80.

However, it can also affect people under the age of 65 (this is known as young onset dementia).
