Dementia is a group of symptoms caused by specific brain disorders. The most common cause is Alzheimer’s disease, but it can also be the result of a stroke or mini-strokes or other conditions. 

You can find more information about dementia and the adult social care support that is available locally on the Brighton and Hove City Council website
