September is World Alzheimer’s Month and this year Asphalion wants to talk about it.

Dementia is a collective name for progressive degenerative brain syndromes which affect memory, thinking, behaviour and emotion. Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia are the most common types of dementia, responsible for up to 90% of cases of dementia.

Dementia knows no social, economic or geographical boundaries. Lack of knowledge about dementia leads to inaccurate assumptions about its effects on the person and their family and negative stereotypes about how a person with dementia will behave.

There are over 50 million people around the world living with dementia. The number of people living with dementia is predicted to triple, rising to 152 million by 2050.

There is currently no cure for most types of dementia, but treatments, advice, and support are available.

Asphalion has been involved in Alzheimer’s drug development projects and we are committed to continue working to improve the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s disease.
