Dementia is the leading cause of death in the UK. By 2025, it’s estimated that over one million people in the UK will have a diagnosis of dementia – and almost all of us will know someone living with the condition. Dementia UK’s specialist nurses support those living with or affected by dementia through specialist clinics around the UK, helplines and virtual clinics.
