Ceildoor raising awareness for Alzheimer’s 2018Posted on Jun 14, 2018
Ceildoor this week along with thousands of people up and down the country will run, walk, bake and dress up in order to raise money for Alzheimer’s Disease.
The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulties with thinking and problem solving. These changes are often small to start with. However for someone with dementia they become severe enough to affect the simplest of things in daily life. A person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood and showcase uncharacteristic behaviors. Dementia is caused when the brain becomes damaged by disease such as Alzheimer’s Disease.
Alzheimers is the most common cause of dementia, accounting for a huge 60-80% of cases. Statistics show that in 2017 approximately 44 million people around the world were diagnosed with Alzheimers. The exact cause for this terrible disease is still unknown and sadly once onset it is irreversible , however there are treatments that have shown to improve symptoms temporarily. Research continues tirelessly and currently shows that being female, high cholesterol and a history of head trauma are all high risk factors.
