Another little bit on You and Yours
Do you know when the Daily Mail interview will be published Bruce? Or has it already been published and I've missed it?Brucie said:
Bruce, I'm hesitant to question your logic, I'm sure you'll run rings round me, but here goes.Brucie said:Just a bit about interpretation of data for younger people with dementia.
Say, for the sake of argument, we have a care home, and that home can accommodate 20 people who have dementia.
If we look at the past 3 years and for each year we count the number of people who are under 65 ['younger people'] and those who are over that age ['normal'], then we get a chart that looks like the one below.
From that we can read that the number of younger people with dementia is dropping.
Brucie said:at the conference this week, 'early onset' was being used as 'initial stages' [even for 'normal' age people with dementia] by the researchers and others, something that confused me into changing my own terminology.
