NOTES FROM DIANE ARMSTRONG:

* One in three people over 65 will develop dementia
* Alzheimer's Society research shows that 800,000 people in the UK have a form of dementia; more than half have Alzheimer's disease. In less than ten years a million people will be living with dementia. This will soar to 1.7 million people by 2051
* Alzheimer's Society champions the rights of people living with dementia and the millions of people who care for them 

The Alzheimer's Society in Craven offers support to anyone who is concerned or has been diagnosed with any form of dementia and their carers.
