Definition and Symptoms:

Dementia is a collection of symptoms that effects one’s memory, thinking, and social skills to the extent in which daily functioning is interrupted. Dementia is more severe than the normal aging process which can slow one’s memory and cognition. Symptoms include memory loss, difficulty with communication such as finding words, difficulty completing complex tasks, difficulty with planning and organizing, difficulty with coordination and motor function, disorientation, personality changes, and inability to reason, paranoia, agitation, and hallucinations.

Causes and Complications:

Dementia involves damage to the nerve cells of the brain. Because different areas of the brain can be involved, patients may exhibit different signs and symptoms based on the area of the brain affected. Some dementia can be caused by reaction to medication or infection and are reversible with treatment. Other forms of dementia are progressive and worsen over time.
