What is Dementia?


Dementia refers to a global decline in cognitive capacities to such an extent that the daily living is greatly affected. Dementia includes, but is not restricted to, memory loss. Other capacities compromised are language, communication skills, perception, judgement and reasoning. Dementia can be either reversible or irreversible – reversible dementia has an acute onset and can be cured by treating the 'cause'. Irreversible dementia has a more prolonged onset and doesn't have a cure although efforts can be made to manage it. Alzheimer's is the major cause for irreversible Dementia.
