Too many delay seeking dementia diagnosis, charity says
More than half of those seeking a diagnosis for dementia have delayed going to their GP by at least a year, according to a survey carried out by the Alzheimer’s Society.
The charity says nearly two-thirds of people fear a diagnosis would mean their life is over.
But it says an early diagnosis can actually help people to live as well as possible. And it wants everyone to confront head-on the challenges posed by dementia.
