Dementia

Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.

Dementia can’t be cured, but there are treatments. Early diagnosis allows a person to get the maximum benefit from available treatments and provides an opportunity to participate in clinical trials.
