Portfield chose the charity Dementia Support as Dementia comes in so many forms and impacts on so many people’s lives both young and old. Portfield recently donated £7,000 and pledge to fundraise a further £3,000 throughout the year. Dementia Support aim to embrace all aspects of dementia and support the local community by bringing together local dementia services under one roof.
Dementia currently affects an estimated 850,000 people in the UK, and yet it is one of the most misunderstood and taboo illnesses affecting our population. Dementia is not a normal part of ageing. The umbrella term ‘dementia’ is used to describe a collection of symptoms associated with a progressive decline in cognitive function, largely amongst older people. While it can be considered a ‘mental health’ issue, it is caused by physical disease – affecting the structure and chemical workings of the brain, and resulting in a loss of memory, reasoning and communication skills.
Although it is not restricted to older people, dementia in younger people is less common. Dementia has however been diagnosed in people as young as 30, known as young onset dementia.
