Paul Green, spokesman for over 50s experts Saga comments on the report today by the Alzheimer's Research Trust

"As highlighted in the Saga Generation Manifesto dementia is an issue of growing importance for the UK. Dementia costs the UK more than cancer, heart disease and stroke combined, yet research into dementia is shockingly under funded.

The Saga Generation Manifesto called on the government to target research funds to this in a bid to reduce the massive financial burden it is bound to create both in terms of treatment of the individuals and support for the carers that will be critical to support them."
