Citizen editor: Help find these love cats a new home
'IT's just old age', 'I would forget my head if it wasn't screwed on' – both expressions often trotted out when we have the odd memory lapse.
But what happens when, in fact, these lapses are a sign of something more serious? How do we spot the signs in ourselves and our loved ones?
A new campaign has been launched to encourage people to become dementia friends so they can learn about the condition and its symptoms, as well as the support that is available for carers.
This is to be welcomed. Dementia is a condition which is not easy to understand and can breed fear if not properly explained and support provided.

But retired nurse Jo Smith raises a very valid point about not just increasing the publicity around the issue, but also ensuring the local authority encourages a coordinated response to help those affected.
PAYING back £16,000 seems nothing given the £85,000 pocketed by the mum on today's front page.
Her crime shocked and angered many from parents and those battling cancer for real.
She netted benefits she was entitled to after she shaved her son's head and eyebrows and forged doctors' notes to make it look like he was being treated for cancer.
Let's hope she can pay back the state, although more time inside may just give her extra time to think about her disgraceful actions.
THEY were made famous in a song by The Cure, but now a pair of love cats hope hitting the headlines will mean they can finally have a home to call their own.
The inseparable pair have been through the mill and deserve a caring new owner.
