FAQ on dementia
Our Dementia FAQs leaflet offers example answers to questions you may be commonly asked by a member of the public. However, don’t feel that you need to learn it by heart. If you don’t know the answer to a question, the best thing to do is point people in the direction of their GP (for medical questions) or the Alzheimer’s Research UK Dementia Research Infoline. We produce a range of free health information booklets and can answer any other questions relating to dementia.
If you are asked about the use of animals in research, we have produced a booklet called ‘Why research using animals can help defeat dementia’. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like hard copies of this leaflet.
