More than 421,000 Australians are currently affected by dementia, with this number expected to rise over the coming years. It can occur in anyone, with the likelihood increasing with age. Importantly, dementia is not considered a normal part of the ageing process. Rather, it’s a diagnosis that can be planned for.
