FALMOUTH, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 28: (EDITOR'S NOTE: The subjects are the photographer's family.) Karen Hastings visits her stepfather Gordon, who suffers from dementia, at the Langholme Care Home on November 28, 2020 in Falmouth, England. Many care homes in the UK currently do not have access to rapid Covid testing nor do they have the resources to facilitate indoor visits or any visits for families of their residents.

Dementia affects around 50 million people worldwide. And apparently, your risk of developing it is higher if you find it hard to hear people talking in a noisy place, like a room.
