These are some of the sources of further information that I have referenced both on this site and facebook page:

Dementia & Alzheimer’s disease did you know?
UK – There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051. 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes. 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia. [Ref – Alzheimer’s Society]
WORLD – Although dementia mainly affects older people, it is not a normal part of ageing. Worldwide, around 50 million people have dementia, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and may contribute to 60–70% of cases. [Ref – World Health Orgnisation]
