Dementia

The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease or a series of strokes.

Types of dementia Alzheimer's disease Vascular dementia Dementia with Lewy bodies Fronto-temporal dementia Rarer causes of dementia Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease Korsakoff's syndrome HIV-related cognitive impairment Mild cognitive impairment

All types of dementia are progressive. This means that the structure and chemistry of the brain becomes increasingly damaged over time. The person's ability to remember, understand, communicate and reason gradually declines.

How quickly dementia progresses depends on the individual. Each person is unique and experiences dementia in their own way.
