Understanding dementia behaviour and its changes is important for caregivers and the population in general. 90% of people with dementia show characteristics of challenging or worrying behaviour. Some examples of dementia behaviour include aggression or confusion, but this is dependent on the stage. 
Dementia is the leading cause of death in Britain, where the average cost to the UK is £34.7 billion per year. There are almost one million people living with dementia in the UK, but only 62% are diagnosed. While incurable, research suggests 40% of cases are preventable, but 98% of people could improve their brain health to reduce risks.
