New campaign launched as dementia tops the list of health worries in Wales


New Welsh Government figures show 76% of people in Wales are worried about developing dementia later in life.
The findings of a survey about dementia are published as the Minister for Health and Social Services launches a new campaign designed to helped everyone in Wales take simple steps to reduce their risk of developing dementia.
Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford said: “The risk of dementia increases with age and as more people are living longer, the number of people developing dementia will grow. You are never too young to take some simple steps to improve both your physical and mental health as you age and hopefully reduce your risk of dementia and other diseases.
“We are committed to reducing the impact of dementia. That is why we are investing extra money; taking action to increase diagnosis rates and improve support for those with dementia.”
