What is Dementia?

According to the Alzheimer’s Association dementia is not a specific disease. It is an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to interfere with daily life.  
Dementia is often called “senility “or “senile dementia,” which indicates the widespread but incorrect belief that serious mental decline is a normal part of aging. Dementia is the progressive decline in memory and other thinking skills due to the gradual dysfunction and loss of brain cells. People with dementia may have problems with short-term memory, keeping track of a purse or wallet, paying bills, remembering appointments and/or traveling out of the neighborhood. Although they have memory loss issues this does not mean they have Alzheimer’s although it is the most common form of dementia. Many dementias are progressive, meaning symptoms start out slowly and gradually get worse.
