Subject Definitions

For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
Entertainment and outings are provided by a number of clubs and organisations within Croydon and the surrounding areas.These can be easily accessed and more information can be obtained by contacting AGE UK or by calling the groups personally.
As many as one in four of us will have some sort of mental health problem in our lives, yet it’s still a taboo subject. It’s important to make sure you keep your emotional and mental health in check and recognise if there’s a problem.
