The cost of social care for people with dementia in Wales will double over the next 20 years, according to the Alzheimer's Society.
It's also estimated that almost 80,000 people will be diagnosed with the condition by 2040.
The report, commissioned by Alzheimer's Society from the London School of Economics and Political Science, predicts that as our population ages, a higher number of people with dementia will have higher care needs for longer
This means it will drive up the amount spent on care by 157 per cent - from a total of £1.8 billion in 2019 to over £3.6 billion in 2040.
Previous research by Alzheimer's Society has shown that someone with dementia will typically have to spend £100,000 on their care and say that many have been forced to sell their homes to pay for it.
