Dementia is not really a disease, but a group of symptoms demonstrating
a decline in mental capabilities. Alzheimer’s disease is one cause of
dementia, but there are also many other diseases and conditions which
cause dementia. It is always important to contact your doctor if you or
a loved one are experiencing memory problems, as many of these are
reversible with early recognition and treatment.
Dementias can present themselves as memory problems, behavior problems,
poor judgment, fear, social withdrawal, anger, cursing, and general
difficulty handling life’s everyday stressors. Behaviors often
escalate under stress, placing an undue burden on the caregiver and
Many dementias are not treatable and can no longer be managed at home.
