Suranne lost her mother, Jenny, in 2016 after she died of vascular dementia, a common form of dementia caused by reduced blood flow to the brain.
A few years later, the actress opened up about her mother’s experience with the condition, explaining, ‘Sometimes when you talk about dementia, people think it’s a term that only refers to old people.
“My mother was diagnosed at a fairly young age, in her late fifties, and her dementia accelerated quite quickly.”
Suranne has previously spoken of the impact her mother’s death had on her, telling The Mirror in 2018: It never occurred to me at the time that I might lose her. Now … I can really appreciate how brave she was.
“Mom’s illness brought our family closer and made us realize how wonderful she is.”
