What is Dementia?
“So, what is Dementia?”: The words “Oldtimers and/or Alzheimer’s” may immediately pop into your head; however, the word dementia includes much more than you may realize. Dementia can affect different areas of thinking, such as memory, language, and reasoning, is usually progressive, and has many possible causes, with the most common cause being Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, it is NOT a normal part of aging and can start in mid-life! It can be a complex and unpredictable journey, particularly when one is unaware of the many challenges that can arise as dementia progresses. Please join us on this journey of discovery and empowerment as we learn dementia signs, symptoms, patterns of progression, and treatment options available.
