Alzheimer's / Dementia

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are progressive neurological disorders that affect memory, thinking, and behaviour. Millions of families worldwide are impacted by these conditions, facing challenges that can be overwhelming. The Turvy Family Charity is committed to raising awareness and supporting families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia, fostering a community of care, understanding, and hope.

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60-80% of cases. It is a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and cognitive skills, eventually impairing the ability to carry out simple tasks. While the majority of people with Alzheimer’s are 65 and older, early-onset Alzheimer’s can affect individuals in their 40s and 50s.
