World Alzheimer's month has taken place every 21 September for the past eight years. From the first occasion in 2012, its aim is to raise awareness around dementia.

As an international campaign, HCA Healthcare UK is able to provide several areas of medical expertise around Alzheimer's and its effects on dementia care.

From hydrocephalus - which is excess fluid on the brain to electroencephalogram (EEG) - which records electrical activity in the brain, we have gathered together information which you may find useful for yourself, a member of your family or a friend. 

Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology aims to identify and understand the changes in behaviour resulting from neurological conditions. 

Dementia

Dementia is a group of symptoms connected to the ongoing decline of brain function. They include memory loss, difficulties problems solving, and with language. A person with dementia may also experience behavioural changes.

Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is an excess of cerebrospinal fluid builds in the ventricles within the brain. There are different types: congenital, acquired and normal pressure.

Electroencephalogram

An Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test to record the electrical activity in your brain and locate the source of symptoms including seizures.
