I was pleased to attend the Dementia Action Week parliamentary drop-in.  There is estimated to be over 850,000 people living with dementia and nearly 650 people in my constituency live with the condition. Dementia is still a disease that is not well understood and is set to affect a record number of people. I was pleased to chat with Laurence Geller who is helping promote awareness, research, and funding through the Geller commission, which will help accelerate trials for the treatment of dementia.
