What is Dementia?
Understanding dementia starts with dementia being an umbrella term used to define a wide range of disorders involving neurological degradation. There are many types of dementia, all of which affect the brain, however the most common form is Alzheimer’s disease. Whilst there are staple characteristics of dementia (such as cognitive impairment), symptoms can manifest in unique ways according to the person. Dementia can often be a scary subject to discuss with your loved-one but diagnosis is incredibly important - especially during early stages. Although it may seem overwhelming, it opens access to support systems and medical advice and care that can make a huge difference on the standard of living experienced by those who have been diagnosed.
