Forgetting the word 'moon' through dementia

More than 525,000 people with dementia in the UK are living at home, the Victoria Derbyshire programme has learned.

The figure, provided by the Alzheimer's Society, represents a significant proportion of the 850,000 people thought to be living with the condition.

Three individuals living with the disease were asked to film parts of their lives over the course of a month for the programme.

Here, Christopher Devas - who was diagnosed seven years ago - struggles to remember the word "moon" when out for a walk in the countryside with his wife Veronica.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast weekdays from 9:15-11:00 BST on BBC Two and BBC News Channel.
