Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, covering a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.
A group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth which can advance to other parts of the body, as opposed to benign tumours which do not spread.

Also known as trisomy 21, this is a genetic disorder associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features and mild to moderate intellectual disability.
An inherited disorder that results in the death of brain cells. Symptoms include subtle mental problems usually followed by a lack of coordination and an unsteady gait.
Many children diagnosed with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) will also have a sensory or physical disability, complex health needs or mental health difficulties.
Motor Neurone Disease
A progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the motor neurones, cells which transmit electrical nerve impulses from one part of the body to another.
A lifelong condition which can cause mild or serious problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.

Spinal Cord Injury
Damage that causes loss of muscle function, sensation or autonomic function in parts of the body served by the spinal cord below the level of the lesion.
This occurs when blood supply to the brain is cut off, causing brain cells to be damaged or die. This can have different effects, depending on where it happens in the brain.
