What is Dementia?

As we get older, memory loss becomes more common. When the body and mind age, it becomes more difficult to keep track of as many pieces of information as we could when we were younger. Not all memory loss is common, though, and some seniors may experience it as a result of a serious injury or disease.

Dementia is a term used to describe various symptoms associated with memory loss and other problems with the mind. Seniors who suffer from dementia often have difficulty thinking clearly and may be unable to care for themselves on a daily basis. Some of the most common symptoms of dementia include changes in memory, trouble focusing, difficulty with reasoning, and problems with visual perception.
