The global challenge Dementia is a devastating condition that can ruin lives and strip individuals of not just their memories, but their relationships, and identity too. Across the world, around 50 million people are currently living with the condition, 900,000 of whom are in the UK. It is estimated that 153 million people around the world will be affected by 2050.
