Help to spot early signs of dementia

AN AWARENESS campaign has been launched after statistics revealed that six out of ten sufferers of dementia in Hucknall, Bulwell and the rest of the county go undiagnosed.

The government has launched an education scheme in Nottinghamshire to impress on people the signs of dementia and the importance of early diagnosis — particularly among those aged 40 and above.

The £2 million campaign will feature TV, radio and newspaper adverts in a bid to reduce the £8.2 billion a year that it costs to provide services for patients affected by dementia.
