Subject Definitions

For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
If there is a problem with either a persons physical or mental health this can affect their day to day lives and may mean that they are entitled to benefits as a result and further medical support.
