Dementia

Dementia describes a group of symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language, and sometimes changes in mood or behaviour. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia, they have become bad enough to affect daily life.  Alzheimer’s and Dementia isn’t a natural part of ageing. It occurs when the brain is affected by a disease.  There are many known causes of dementia – probably more than 100. The most common types are Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. Some people have a combination of these, known as mixed dementia.
