Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 50-60% of all cases.

These plaques gradually damage and destroy the nerve cells making it more and more difficult to remember, reason, understand and express ideas.

What about a family history of Alzheimers Disease?

Some insurers will automatically increase your price by 50% because a family member had Alzheimers Disease.

We deal with one insurer who can offer you the standard price.

What about suffering dementia after an injury?

Recently one of out clients had her premium increased because her mother had suffered dementia after a serious fall.

Fortunately, we knew who to turn to and our other insurer offered her the normal price.
