Research shows that people currently living with dementia have not received any formal diagnosis. Since dementia is a syndrome caused by a variety of brain illnesses, early stages are usually difficult to diagnose. The condition affects one’s memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities. Dementia facts could be limited to people living with the said condition. Moreover, with the growth of digital age, one must know how alarming this condition has become.

This in turn, impacts carers, families and societies physically, psychologically and economically. Share this graphic to spread awareness!
