Alastair Stewart, former broadcaster and ITV News anchor, has revealed that he was diagnosed with dementia earlier this year. The 71-year-old began feeling disoriented while doing simple tasks around the house and was later diagnosed with the incurable condition after scans revealed he had suffered a series of strokes. Stewart expressed that the hardest part of his diagnosis was the impact on his wife, Sally. The condition has affected his short-term memory and motor skills, but he is attempting to alleviate symptoms with word puzzles, dog walks, and by quitting smoking. Stewart retired in March after a long career in broadcasting.
