Over 18% of the UK’s population is now over 65 years old, and this proportion is increasing to the point where the UK will soon be a ‘super-aged’ society, defined as 20% of the population over the age of 65. Ageing is the single most important risk factor for dementia, thus the prevalence of dementia is also increasing. By 2025, there will be an estimated 1 million people living with dementia in the UK and this figure is set to double by 2050 (a rise of 146%).
