Dementia is a chronic disorder that attacks mental processes, resulting in memory loss, personality changes and impaired reasoning.
Researchers at Alzheimer's Disease International estimate that there are nearly 50 million people worldwide living with dementia - a number set to double every 20 years due to the world's ageing population.
