23 Year Old Diagnosed with Dementia

Posted on November 2, 2018

A 23 year old entrepreneur has been identified as the youngest person to be diagnosed with dementia, which could reduce his life expectancy.

Having inherited a rare gene from his mother, who died at the age of 52, the entrepreneur has been warned that his health will deteriorate as he gets older.

At present, there are approximately 537,000 people who have a dementia diagnosis in the UK; these statistics will surpass 1 million by 2025 and 2 million by 2050.

To help raise awareness, the Jefferies Jets took part in the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk earlier this month and managed to raise £1,439.50!

Dementia is the only condition in the top ten causes of death without a treatment to prevent, cure or slow its progression.

It is becoming increasingly clear, when more people are being diagnosed at a younger age, how important it is to ensure life planning for all adults.
