Understanding Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
Dementia is not a single disease, but an overall term that covers a wide range of medical conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease. Disorders that fall under the general term “dementia” are caused by abnormal changes in the brain. These changes generate a decline in thinking skills, or cognitive abilities, that are severe enough to impair daily life and independent function. They also impact behaviors, emotions, and relationships.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia and it accounts for 60-80% of all dementia cases. Contrary to popular belief, Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. In fact, it is an abnormal and progressive disease, where symptoms gradually worsen over time. In its early stages, memory is mild, but individuals with late-stage Alzheimer's lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.
