Why you shouldn’t delay a dementia diagnosis – Dr Hilary Jones

A dementia diagnosis is vital. Vital to give people access to the care, treatment and support they desperately need. Yet, incredibly, one in three people with dementia do not have a diagnosis.

A dementia diagnosis may feel daunting, but 9 out of 10 people affected by dementia told us there are clear benefits to getting a diagnosis.

What is dementia?
‘Dementia’ describes a group of symptoms that include problems with memory, thinking or language, and changes in mood, emotions, perception and behaviour. Dementia is a progressive disease, which means symptoms may be relatively mild at first, but they get worse over time. There are many types of dementia but Alzheimer’s disease is the most common. The next most common is vascular dementia.
