Dementia is a set of symptoms that is caused by diseases that result in
the loss of nerve cells in the brain. Many people with dementia require
Alzheimer’s care; however, Alzheimer’s disease is not the
only cause of dementia. Some of the symptoms that commonly occur in individuals
with dementia include impaired cognitive function, coordination deficits,
and memory loss.
