A health expert has warned against routine dementia screenings, stating that early diagnosis can "turn someone's life upside down", years before the dementia does.
Dr Chris Fox, from the University of East Anglia's medical school said:
There is no doubt that we are experiencing a dementia tsunami, with the crest of the wave yet to come. But rolling out routine dementia screening will be an even worse disaster in slow motion.
People who are diagnosed with very early-stage dementia will be worse off than people who are not diagnosed until their dementia is more apparent.
