Dementia now Number 1 killer in UK



Dementia is something that I’m sure a lot of people have experienced with a family member or friend. It is a horrible disease that is not only difficult for the person diagnosed to deal with but also for the family members around them.

According to Vitality UK the statistics are now showing Dementia to be the No 1 killer in the UK, with 1 in 6 being affected and it is now predicted that those born today these odds will increase to 1 in every 3.

The majority of dementia patients need some form of care along the way which usually turns full time near the end when the illness is at its most aggressive state. It is really important for people to prepare themselves financially at an early stage for the risk of if they or a family member were to be diagnosed.

The majority of insurance providers out in the market will cover Dementia under their critical illness cover plans and some, like Vitality, also offer the option of adding a Dementia and Frail care cover package which continues at the end of the policy to cover the costs of being diagnosed, either up to 50% or 100% of the original cover taken on.
