HOW FIVE COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT ALZHEIMERS ARE EXPLAINED FROM ALZHEIMERS SOCIETY! (1009 hits)


For Immediate Release From Alzheimers Association!

World Alzheimer's Day, on 21 September, is a focal point for charities and research organisations to raise awareness of all forms of dementia, as well as Alzheimer's.

This week Alzheimer's Research pledged to commit £250m to research by 2025, to help fund the continuing efforts into finding a cure for the disease.

Hilary Evans, the chief executive, said: "In the same way medical research has overcome other diseases in the past, we can make the same breakthroughs for people affected by dementia and their families.

"As a society, we have already overcome so many challenges, including developing life-changing treatments for some of the world's deadliest diseases. Alzheimer's and other dementias are now one of society's biggest medical challenges, but overcoming them isn't impossible."

Despite Alzheimer's and dementia affecting so many people in Britain, a a poll from Alzheimer's Research UK showed that 22% of adults thing dementia is an "inevitable" part of getting older, and only half thought it was a cause of death.

Charity Alzheimer's Society UK has put five myths and misconceptions about dementia to bed:
