Understanding Dementia

Dementia is a collective term used to describe the problems that people with various underlying brain disorders or damage can have with their memory, language and thinking.

Alzheimer's disease is the best known and most common disorder under the umbrella of dementia.

Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse as more brain cells become damaged and eventually die.
