Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe several different disorders that affect the brain, particularly memory, behaviour, thinking and emotion.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Other causes include vascular disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontal-temporal dementia.
Dementia symptoms include difficulty recalling recent events, concentrating and following conversations. Dementia is incurable but research into a cure is ongoing.
Dementia is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. Dementia is a chronic progressive problem of cognition – which is a failure of the brain’s functions. IT affects people at different stages of life, it affects different parts of the brain and it affects it at different speeds.
