Dementia symptoms: The early warning sign when watching the TV – it can last for ‘hours’

However, this is not the case; the UK government recently decided to cut dementia funding in a bid to save money.

Charities such as Alzheimer’s Research UK are saying funding should be increased rather than cut.

Head of Policy at Alzheimer’s Research UK, Susan Mitchell, said: “Given the government has so far not delivered on its ‘Dementia Moonshot’ pledge to double funding for dementia research we need to see commitments followed up by clear plans with accountability and suitable funding to enable delivery.”

Mitchell’s comments came hours after Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced the government had an ambitious plan to tackle dementia; the plan is set to be revealed later this year.
