Dementia has been defined as a syndrome characterised by the development of multiple cognitive deficits including at least one of the following: aphasia, apraxia, agnosia or a disturbance of executive functioning (Cummings and Khachaturian, 1999). There are an estimated 18 million people world-wide with dementia. Dementia primarily affects older people. The chance of having the condition rises with age to 1 person in 20 over the age of 65, and 1 person in 5 over the age of 80 (ADI, 2004). There are many causes of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies (Alzheimer’s Society, 2005). 24.1.1
