What Is Dementia?
Dementia refers to the general decline in mental ability that often occurs in old age that severely interferes with daily life. One of the most common symptoms and earliest signs of this ailment is memory loss, but there are other signs to look for in your loved one.
Symptoms of dementia vary widely from person to person, but two of the following mental functions need to be significantly impaired to be classified as dementia:
- Language and communication
- Ability to pay attention
Typically, dementia cases are progressive, starting out with mild symptoms that you may barely even notice. For example, your loved one may simply start losing track of personal items more often. These seemingly innocent actions could be the start of a slow decline in mental ability. See your doctor for help if you think your loved one may be experiencing early signs of dementia.

What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s Disease is a form of dementia that causes memory loss and other problems with mental and cognitive abilities. It is also the most common form of dementia, making up 50-80% of cases.

- Memory loss
- Inability to remember newly learned information
- Suspicion about other people, including family members
- Difficulty communication or speaking
- Mood or behavior changes
- These signs may not be very obvious or easy to accept by the person experiencing them. If you notice these changes in your elderly loved one, see your doctor immediately.
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
