The Alzheimer's Society is calling for better support to help people with dementia.

The charity, which are launching its 'Right to Know' campaign today, says there is a desperate shortage of support for people with the condition.

A poll carried out by the charity, found one in five people affected by dementia are given no information or support after their diagnosis.

The campaign aims to ensure people with the condition get a diagnosis, as well as access to vital information, support, and available treatments.

More than 45,000 people are currently living with dementia in Wales.
