Spotlight on the brain and dementia
Understanding how dementia affects different parts of the brain is useful, particularly if you are looking after someone with dementia.
The brain is the most complex organ in the body and produces every thought, memory and action, experience and feeling we have. The more we can understand the brain, the more sense emotions and behaviour will make.
You may already know that dementia is not just the brain getting older. It is caused by damage to the brain that can produce unpredictable results and symptoms.
But, did you know that there are more than 100 types of dementia? The condition affects memory, emotions, communication, behaviour, vision and motor skills – and it worsens over time.
The session is for you if you would like to …
- Learn about the different types of dementia and how they can affect the brain
- Spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe and supportive environment.
- Meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
