“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. To coincide with Alzheimer’s Awareness Week the full report is now available online at

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 children or younger adults.

Lundbeck supports the internet launch of “Improving Care for Advanced Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease” – an expert report authored by three of the UK’s leading dementia specialists – Professor Alistair Burns, Professor Roy Jones and Dr David Wilkinson.
