What is dementia?
Dementia is the loss of thinking, memory and reasoning skills to such an extent that it seriously affects a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. Dementia is not a disease itself, but a group of symptoms caused by certain diseases or conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease.
What is Alzheimer’s disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is an age-related, non-reversible brain disorder that develops over a period of years. Initially, people experience memory loss and confusion, which may be mistaken for the kinds of memory changes that are sometimes associated with normal aging. Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia characterized by cognitive and behavioral problems. It is the most common type of dementia among people age 65 and older.
