We all Matter, Eh? is currently running a campaign to raise awareness of hidden disabilities. In this video Eddie & his wife explain how they cope on a day to day basis with his dementia. They have lots of mechanisms which may benefit someone you know with short term memory loss.
The term â€˜dementiaâ€™ is used to describe a set of symptoms that occur when the brain is damaged by specific diseases and conditions. Dementia is not a natural part of the ageing process. It mainly affects people over the age of 65 but it affects younger people as well. All dementias are progressive which means that the symptoms will gradually get worse.
