    Have read the news piece. Think its saying that there will be less people with dementia than forecast..ie in the mid 2020s 1 million forecast.
    Where's the mention of younger people being diagnosed??
    Why are we focusing on getting older. There are so many people under 65 being diagnosed and we should be focusing on this also.
    The work that's being done in relation to living healthy is obviously helping.
    The reality is that all this work is based on those that have a diagnosis hence included in figures!
    We all know on tp that so many are waiting for diagnosis and so many don't even recognise or would accept help or a diagnosis. As is their rights if chosen. We all use services and need input health wise. .yet the need for health intervention may not be connected to current dementia figures.

    As long as they don't use it as an excuse to cut the budget.
