Derbyshire dementia rise

Have your say

Figures released today (Monday) have revealed an increase in the number of people in Derbyshire that have been diagnosed with dementia.

Diagnoses rose from 3,937 cases in 2011 to 4,385 last year as the Alzheimer’s Society warned half of people that are living with dementia aren’t receiving the support, benefits and the treatments that are often available.

It is estimated 10,299 people live with the condition in the county which has a diagnosis rate of 42.6 per cent.
