What is dementia?

The word ‘dementia’ is used to describe symptoms of memory decline and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language that are severe enough to affect daily life.

There are many different causes of dementia. The most common cause is Alzheimer’s disease.

Why get involved in research?

Clinical trials are vital to the process of improving medical care by improving scientific knowledge.

Individual benefits might include gaining a greater understanding of your own health, access to new treatments, and care and support from the research team.

We are looking for people aged 45 or over who are interested in taking part in dementia research.

You could be:

  • A volunteer with no memory problems.
  • A patient with a diagnosis of MCI or Alzheimer’s. 
  • A carer or relative of someone with dementia.
