Dementia currently affects over 750,000 people in the UK. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, making up 55% of all cases. It is a chronic, progressive and degenerative disease that mainly, but by no means exclusively, affects older people. AD adversely affects an individual’s memory, thinking, comprehension, judgement, orientation, calculation and language skills.
The disease affects all aspects of a person, threatening their independence and leading to dependency on others. It therefore also has a profound effect on family and friends, many of whom are also elderly.
Lundbeck is pleased to support the launch of “Improving Care for Advanced Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease” – an expert report authored by three of the UK’s leading dementia specialists – hosted today at the House of Commons by Dr Howard Stoate MP.
Improving Care for advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease is the first report of its type ever launched and contains positive steps forward for the management and treatment of advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
