WHAT IS the Difference Between Dementia AND ALZHEIMER’S?
It's easy to consider the Alzheimer's and Dementia as the same condition but actually, Dementia is not a specific disease. Dementia is a group of conditions characterized by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior.
Symptoms eventually grow severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.” As you can imagine, this makes Alzheimer's the most common cause of the dementia condition, accounting for between 60-80% of dementia cases.
What Are The SYMPTOMS OF DEMENTIA and ALZHEIMER’S?
One of the most common early symptoms of Alzheimer's and Dementia is having difficulty remembering newly learned information. In later stages, Alzheimer's and Dementia symptoms can also include mood and behavioral changes, disorientation, deepening confusion about events, time and place; more serious memory loss and behavior changes; unfounded suspicions about family, friends and professional caregivers; and difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking.
