About dementia

Dementia shatters lives. In the time it takes to complete a pit stop at the Monaco Grand Prix, one more person develops the condition, dealing a cruel blow to another family.

There are 50 million people living with dementia across the globe and every minute this figure is rising.  Behind each statistic is a real person and a heart-breaking story – a wife, a husband, a father, a mother.  Each has shared memories, passions, ambitions and hopes that are slowly fading away. A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t just impact one person: its effects ripple through entire families, wreaking devastation on countless lives.

We can’t just talk about dementia. Caring is not enough.

We have to find a solution and a new approach to research is the only way.
