People worried about dementia urged to see GP and get early diagnosis

Dementia warning from health bosses

Dementia warning from health bosses

First published in News

HAMPSHIRE doctors are urging people to come forward if they suspect they have signs of dementia.

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust wants anyone concerned about the condition to speak to their GP, as early diagnosis can help people stay in control and independent for longer.

Trust staff estimate the number of people living with dementia will double nationwide over the next 30 years, and increase by 60 per cent in Hampshire by 2025.

Dr Paul Hopper, a consultant in old age psychiatry from Southern Health, said: ‘Early diagnosis of dementia gives you more time to plan for the future, and helps those around you to provide the best support.”

Early signs include forgetting the names of people or everyday objects, struggling to remember recent events, having problems reasoning and feeling confused.

Southern Health has signed up to the National Dementia Declaration pledging to make its buildings dementia friendly, providing liaison services to acute hospitals and providing more holistic services.

As this announcement coincides with UKIP successes in the elections, could there be a link?

Lines it would of been better to tell him why the Bee's are reducing in numbers and its as nothing to do with spraying in the air, which I will keep an open mind about it, as it would not been the first time a government as sprayed us with chemicals.
noodlesnewman Have a chat with some bee keepers and they will tell you why and what is happening to the bee's, there is more than 1 cause in the reduction of bee's, 1 is because of a mite another reason is because of disease that came in from Europe, Southern Europe and North African bee's are now being attack by a Wasp that as come in from Asia.
