OVERVIEW OF DEMENTIA 

Dementia is the 7th leading cause of death worldwide. While it may be associated with forgetfulness, it’s much more than that. Dementia is a general term used to describe diseases that cause irreversible damage to the brain. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, resulting in behavior changes, loss of cognitive function, a decline in reasoning skills, and more. 

Seniors with dementia may forget how to perform routine daily tasks, like getting dressed, which can make it difficult for them to maintain their independence. They may also face challenges with communication, causing them to struggle to express their physical or emotional needs.
