Dementia Death Rate Soars!
Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease have risen from the 24th leading cause of death in the United Kingdom to the 10th in the last 20 years. Dementia is now one of the top 10 (and fastest rising) causes of death. Not including the untold human cost, dementia costs of the UK economy £23 billion a year.
