Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
Dementia isn’t a specific disease. Instead, it describes a group of symptoms affecting intellectual and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily functioning. It’s caused by conditions or changes in the brain. Different types of dementia exist, depending on the cause. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type.–Mayo Clinic
Today, an estimated 5.3 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. But even more Americans suffer from other forms of Dementia. There are eight medically recognized forms of dementia and no two people experience dementia in the same way.
