Dementia sufferers in Italy to nearly double by 2050-experts

Milan, January 19 - Around 1.2 million people in Italy are living with dementia, and experts believe that number will have almost doubled by 2050. The organisation Pronto Alzheimer, which runs a telephone line to help families care for ill relatives, said it had received more than 4,600 requests in 2015. Dementia is an umbrella term for deteriorating mental ability that interferes with daily life. Alzheimer's is the most common form. Pronto Alzheimer's helpline provides information about the disease and how to handle it, and advice from a legal, psychological and social point of view. Worldwide there are an estimated 46.8 million people living with a form of dementia, according to Alzheimer Disease International's World Alzheimer Report 2015. The number in Italy is expected to rise to around 2.3 million by 2050.
