There is a huge emotional impact a dementia diagnosis has on patients, families, and caregivers. Common feelings during this life-changing experience include anxiety, distress, and depression, not just for the person that has dementia but for the whole family. Families and friends provide most of the care for people with dementia and it is vital that everyone living with dementia receives the help and support they need to maximise their physical and emotional health and wellbeing. 

According to the Department of Health, there are now 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, costing the economy around £26.3bn a year. 52% of people in the UK know someone who has dementia. By 2025, one million people in the UK will have dementia, and this will increase to two million by 2050. 1 in 3 people born this year will develop dementia in their lifetime. 

Hampshire is one of the top five UK areas with the highest incidence of dementia, with over 24,000 people in the county being diagnosed with dementia in 2020. (ARUK) 

They are conducting a survey to find out more about the dementia support available in Hampshire and would really appreciate it if you could take 5 minutes to complete a short survey.
