Get Familiar With Dementia
Dementia is a general term used for conditions involving memory loss. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are others as well. Often, dementia doesn’t only impede memory, but other mental faculties too. Dementia can affect reasoning abilities, thinking processes, and behavior. If your loved one begins to show signs of dementia, their healthcare provider can evaluate their condition to determine what type they may be suffering from and how to treat it.
