Dementia Care

What is Dementia?

Dementia is a collective term for a group of cognitive disorders characterized by memory loss, impaired reasoning, and a decline in cognitive function. It is not a specific disease but rather a set of symptoms that can be caused by various conditions.

 

Key Points:

  • Progressive forgetfulness impacting recent and past events

  • Challenges in problem-solving, decision-making, and language skills

  • Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, and Frontotemporal Dementia

  •  Resulting from Alzheimer's-related changes, vascular issues, or underlying medical conditions

What's the Distinction Between Alzheimer's and Dementia?

Dementia is a broad term that encompasses various brain disorders affecting cognitive function. It leads to the loss of both short and long-term memory, impairs concentration and decision-making abilities, and hinders emotional control and clear communication.

 

Dementia has numerous causes and types. Alzheimer's disease is just one type, but it stands as the most prevalent cause of dementia worldwide, as well as in the UK. Alzheimer's is a distinct degenerative brain disease that ultimately results in dementia.
