With an ageing baby boomer generation, and few concrete, scientific advancements towards a prescribed drug or treatment in the last 10 years, Dementia and Alzheimer’s have become increasingly concerning conditions in the UK. As a result, the urgency to find a treatment is also becoming a pressing concern, as researchers endeavour to find a way of preventing the progression of these diseases.

Men's Health Week
 

Men's Health Week 2014 specifically focused on health in relation to work, unemployment and stress, as health issues have been increasingly noticed following hardship brought upon men as a consequence of the recession, and issue which was far too often overlooked.

 
Mental Health Awareness Week
 
Mental health is becoming increasingly important, and that's why Mental Health Awareness Week provides such a wonderful opportunity to educate individuals about mental health conditions, including how to deal with them in your own life, and how to help others feeling their effects.
 
Alzheimer's
 
There’s no denying that Alzheimer’s can have a terrible impact on the lives of sufferers and their loved ones, and with diagnosis rates steadily rising, management of the disease is now more important than ever. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimers, but, as its prevalence continues to increase, notably with the aging of the baby boomers generation, research has been stepped up, and it looks as though there might finally be some light at the end of the tunnel.
 

Over one million people have now signed up to The Alzheimer's Society's groundbreaking 'Dementia Friends' initiative.

 
Dementia Friends
 
The programme originally launched two years ago, and it aims to educate the general public on what dementia is, how to spot the symptoms, and how to help those suffering from the illness, in order to eradicate the fear and isolation felt by many with the disease. The plan is working towards creating 'dementia friendly communities' with support networks across the country.
 

There's no denying that more of us are now reaching old age than ever before - while this rise in life expectancy is thanks to excellent advances in medical technology and education, the knock-on effect is an increased strain on the NHS. With the post-war baby boom generation now already beginning to retire, our care system is about to face a strain like never before.

 
 
The Integral Foundation has projected that, by 2018, the proportion of over-65s in the UK will have risen by around 2 million, which at current funding levels will mean that spending per patient will have to fall by 9% to cover the increase in demand from this generation. When Simon Stevens, the current Chief Executive of the NHS, joined the organisation in 2014, he admitted that "service pressures are intensifying, and long-standing problems are not going to disappear overnight".
 

A recent study reveals that we need to think more carefully about old age and what will happen when we get there.

 
Old woman
 
It seems like old age is something of a taboo subject in modern society. We don't want to think about getting old, and so we don't talk about it - we just push it to the back of our minds and try to forget about the fact that nobody stays young forever.
