At BMF, we work with people living with dementia, providing them with support in their homes. We also work with the elderly people with mental illness; referring them to appropriate services for help and treatment.

  • Dementia occurs when the brain is affected by a disease.
  • It’s not a normal part of ageing and it affects everyone differently with a wide range of symptoms.
  • These can include problems with memory, thinking, concentration, judgement and language.
  • People may become confused or struggle with how they perceive things.
  • Dementia can also cause changes in moods and emotions and affect how someone behaves.
  • Dementia is progressive, which means that symptoms get worse over time.
  • However, many people with dementia lead active and fulfilling lives for many years.
