Alzheimers and Dementia

QUESTION: Alzheimers and dementia - can you please explain the differences?

Simply put, Alzheimers Disease is a form of dementia.

Dementia is the title given to a selection of illnesses that affect a person’s mental processes. These illnesses cause gradual but ongoing changes to memory, rationality, social abilities, intellect and emotion-driven reactions, all of which in turn progressively lessen a person’s ability to function in the way they used to.

Along with Alzheimers Disease, dementia covers Parkinsons Disease, Huntingtons Disease, Vascular Dementia, and Dementia with Lewy Bodies, to name just a few. Of these Alzheimers is the most common form.

Alzheimers and dementia usually, but not always, appears as we enter the retirement years of our life, although this doesn’t mean that everybody will suffer from any sort of dementia.
