They can predict if I might get it,but as yet,don't have a cure. Under those circumstances I don't think I want to know.

The chance of finding a cure rests on how early it can be caught. To date many doctors have been reluctant to diagnose it because there is no cure, and it progresses slowly. And there are many normal reasons for forgetfulness, at all ages. But early diagnosis not only will help in finding a cure, it will help the patient plan their own future while still able to. Like leaving instructions for entry into the wonderful dementia villages instead of an ordinary aged hostel where other residents call them loopy!
