Forty per cent of people in the South West would find it difficult to tell their families if they thought they had dementia. That's according to a poll commissioned by Alzheimer's Society published today.
The Society is warning it could mean thousands of people in the region are struggling with the disease, without the support of their families. At the moment, 52,000 people in the South West have been diagnosed with dementia.
