Living with Dementia
Dementia is a series of disorders of the brain that cause individuals to lose the ability to think, process, judge, and appropriately respond to information. Dementia is a broad term, covering many different diseases of the brain. Some of the more well-known types of dementia include Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, Vascular dementias, and Frontotemporal dementias.
An estimated 24 million people living with some form of dementia and the numbers are projected to rise with the aging “baby-boomer” generation. You are not alone.
